So my 22 month old daughter just picked up a wasp and it stung her finger. It's a little pink an puffy but not swelling up her whole hand. What can I put on it to help her?!

    Calamine lotion or after bite might help - I can't remember age restrictions on after bite.

     My 2y/o just got stung for the first time a couple days ago. 15min freakout and it was over. Just let her chill out she'll be alright :)

    I never used anything for stings when they happened to me as a child.  I just learned not to mess with bees and wasps and those sorts of insects.

    If you have it...breast milk (: It'll take away the swelling and the sting.

    Baking soda mixed with a little cold water will take the pain away and bring down the swelling, as well as neutralize any venom from the sting. Just smear it on there and let it dry, then rinse it off.

    This is what we do too.

    Quoting ImNotKarl:

    Water and baking soda can help the pain.
