Anti-Sting Treatment

Posted on: October 30th, 2014 by

Aluminium sulphate solution has long been known to counter insect stings. Unlike antihistamines this treatment is absorbed through the skin and denatures the venom before it has a chance to stimulate a reaction. Until a couple of years ago you could buy a small spray applicator under the name “Stingose” which contained a 20% solution of aluminium sulphate, but this has now been discontinued due to lack of sales. As no other supplier offers this simple remedy I have purchased a supply of aluminium sulphate and will be bringing it along to the January meeting with intructions for making up your own solution (free of charge).
