Is applying onion juice on the area bitten by wasp effective or should I see the doctor ?

Today at 9.30AM (May 5 11) one wasp (it was totally yellow in color) bit my mother s right hand. She immediately applied onion juice on it. The bitten area has swelled,there is itching and the full hand is paining. More than 3 hours have passed after the incident. Does she require any medical treatment or anything else??

In homoeopathy APIS MEL 30 is a good medicine for sting bite. Take it 2 drops every 3 hourly.

Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Does she have any breathing difficulty? She is developing a Allergic Reaction to a Wasp Sting. Take her to ER at the earliest before it is too late, as she needs immediate medical treatment. If the stinger is stuck there remove it so that further venom doesn't spread and clean the area with soap and water. Apply a cold pack to reduce the pain and swelling.

Good Luck.
