    I have experience with this one and I still cringe when I remember it. The wasp was hiding in the opening in the washer lid handle… and his timing to go there was lousy because I was doing laundry that day… reached right into it and the pain in my hand and fingers was intense.

    I sure wish I would have read this before it happened… I never even thought of looking for a stinger. :-( I did use the ice, but I could have thought of it faster and it probably would have helped more.

    Bottom line is that I didn’t do anything for quite a while because I didn’t know what to do. Great reason to learn more first aid than I knew at the time!
