    but it bloody hurt. I'm going to have to refrain from swearing.

    I just stood on a wasp/bee and had to stand on the bloody side that hurts and now I have a sting right in the middle of my right foot and I think there is still some of the pointy thing in or just the mark left from where it went in and bugger it hurts so much!

    Have put on some wasp-eze and just put on some more 5 minutes ago but it's still throbbing.

    Bugger.

    Any advice?

    I feel like crying it hurt so much.

    Bugger off! I seriously hate wasp/bee stings. Honest to god! And it really does hurt, I'm not kidding. I haven't even looked to see if it has swelled at all :blushing:

    Ok, well from what I've heard in the past with a bee sting: first you should remove the stinger as soon as possible. Use your fingers, tweezers - whatever works best.
    Then wash the site with soap and water, or clean it with alcohol.
    Put ice or a cool, wet compress on the inflamed area.
    Finally, soothe the inflammation with a paste made from baking soda and water. Apply calamine lotion to help relieve itching and pain.
    I've never used it personally, but I have a friend who swears it works!!

    if it wasn't alive it could have been a wasp because i think its wasps that can still sting once they have died

    hope it gets better soon :)
