Best way to stop stinging ftom stinging nettle stings?
Walked across a field just now. Carried dd1 over a patch of stinging nettles. Slipped and put hand in the nettles and dd1s leg is badly stung too. Is there anything that will help with the stinging pain. OMG they hurt. Am at home so no dock leaves!
Baking powder best if no specific medicines to hand. I've got some spray on stuff which is good and means you don't have to touch the sore bits either. Stock up on some for next time! Hope she's ok now.
Thanks. Spit does ease stings for a bit but not long enough. I always tell dc to spit on it! Think this time it us just too many stings in one area. My hand is stinging but a lot less than before and dd1 has calmed down too.
