Wash the area with soap and water.
After you thoroughly wash the area with soap and water, other symptomatic treatments can be applied such as ;
* an ice pack or cool compress
* a meat tenderizer solution, which can be made by mixing one part meat tenderizer and 4 parts of water. This is especially helpful for painful stings from bee, wasp or ant. For best effect, soak a cotton ball in the meat tenderizer solution and use it to rub the area of the bite for 15-20 minutes.
* a baking soda paste
