    Hi girls,

    I was minding my own business this afternoon, helping my class through their leavers assembly then I just got stung by a sodding wasp! Whole school was in the hall along with all my kids' parents, but I had to dash out before I swore my head off. Anyway it stung the knuckle on my index finger and my whole hand is swollen, and it is now travelling up my arm. I called the doc and they said I could take an antihistamine but nothing comes with a guarantee of not affecting baby. The journey we have taken to get PG has been too long and tough, so I don't want to risk it.

    Does anyone have any remedies they can suggest for the swelling and pain?

    Jacq xx

    Thanks Samsgirl, I've just made a baking soda paste and put it on the sting site and covered it in a bandage.
