Stung by a wasp
"Ouch!" I exclaimed. I grabbed my inner, upper thigh and found a wasp - or was it a bee?
Then I started to feel the sting.
My friend suggested that I apply vinegar on the sting. So I asked him to fetch the rice vinegar from my kitchen cupboard.
The next day, my thigh was red. The redness grew. It spread down to my knee.
Then the itching started.
Over the next few days, I had to resist from scratching my thigh.
Amazingly my hayfever stopped almost as soon as I got stung.
Apparently the sting had a homeopathic effect.
But would I rather suffer my horrible hayfever or endure the itchiness?
