Insect bites and stings are something that everyone has to deal with at one point or another no matter how much one sticks to the indoors. The results range from annoying, to painful, to dangerous. Whether it’s a mosquito, tick, spider, or bee, the problems aren’t caused by the bite or sting itself, but by the
venom the pest left behind. It can lead to a miserable afternoon or a visit to the emergency room. Either way, if treated quickly, many complications can be remedied and even avoided using the simple tool of poultices. However, keep in mind that if somebody is experiencing a severe allergic reaction, do seek immediate medical attention. It is most common in the world of poultices to hear of mixing an absorbent material with water or the like. We’ve taken that same concept and amplified the power many times over by adding our own twist to it.
