How To Cure A Wasp Sting.

How should you treat a wasp sting?

One of the major components of ant, bee and wasp stings is formic acid. Vinegar might work because it is a mild buffer, but formic and acetic acids (vinegar) are similar in pH.A paste of baking soda and water or a few drops of ammonia are the best treatments for a hymenopteran sting. The commercial sting relief treatments contain a similar mild base to neutralize the acid of the sting.

What is a good home remedy for a wasp sting?

If it left a stinger, get it out of there, the venom is in the bulb at the base of it.
Make a paste of Baking Soda and water and pack it on there, leave it till it dries, then repeat as often as necessary. The baking soda will draw out the venom and ease the swelling.

If a wasp stings a person with HIV and then stings you, can you get HIV/Aids?

In that case mosquito should also spread AIDs/HIV which is not heard to happen. In the case of wasp I do not think a wasp can sting two persons consequtively as its sting usually gets broken after the first sting.
