    Anyone have one?
    I've heard Brown Soap (WTF is that?), can't seem to find it in Canada? And sugar.

    The drawing salve I remember is a thick black stinky concoction in a tube you use for bee stings.

    It's supposed to "draw" out the stinger.

    Try looking for this one: Corona Woolfat Ointment

    Our family has used this since the 1970s. It can be put on a splinter, infection, etc. to draw it out. Use sparingly.

    Mom sent a small pill bottle with some in it, when I left for college. I used a toothpick to apply it onto band-aids. It came in very handy for many years. I found a rather large tube at Tractor Supply. They also have it at Amazon.com and Walmart.com.

    Don't let the funny name nor animal uses fool you. The metal tin said for horses on one side and for people on the other side. :rommie: Ours was the red topped can here:

    According to Wiki:
    If you get stung by a bee, the stinger has to be removed by scraping it with a fingernail or gently pulling it out with tweezers. A medicated salve might help reduce the pain and swelling, though.

    This product was originally made to soothe cows' udders after milking, but a lot of people use it for chapped and irritated skin as well.

    The brown soap is called Fels-Naptha. You can order it from Amazon.

    Magnesium sulphate paste. Husband and I have used that in the past, in our spotty youth, for getting rid of subcutaneous spots and pimples.

    Try applying a slice of onion. It reduces both the swelling and the pain.
    If you live in a rural area try a leaf of ribwort plantain. Just rub it between your hands till the juice comes out. It's antiseptic and helps against pains and itches. An excellent home remedy against small wounds and all kinds of insect bites and stinges.
