: I am a poor college kid who spends a lot of time in the woods far away from any emergency health care. I am severly allegic to bee stings, and I carry an Epi pen, but I am looking for more information on what I should do I should get stung and am in a life threatening situation unable to recieve care. If anyone could either give me some info, or point me in the right directon of where to look for help I would greatly appreciate it.
you need to carry more thatn one epi-pen and you should care an onion and a knife. cut the onion in half and place it on the the bee sting leave it on an donot look for five min. this will pull the stringer out and some of the posin. but talk to your doctor to see what other medicaation you should have like zantac good luck be safe
