Bite and Sting Treatment the Old Way
The bites of mosquitoes, horseflies, fleas, etc., historically have been treated with temporary solutions.
Bees, wasps jellyfish and imported red fire ants have been soaked with concoctions that only numb or block the pain with chemicals such as ammonia.
The majority of these products also contain cortisone, menthol, Benzocaine or camphor; they address only the itching.
Most such products require repeated applications and can be dangerous if used or swallowed by children.
