|Thanks for the tip! My husband swears by the baking soda paste (I haven't tried it yet). Also a number of medical-related websites I've read recommend the baking soda trick. I'll keep it in mind for next time.
FYI - I do use the baking soda paste for bee stings. Yeah - I'm that lucky one who seems to attract bees and tend to get stung at least once a year without even trying. Works great for that as well.
