  1. Re: I've managed to get beeswax over multiple kitchen utensils

    Scrape off what you can using something like a credit card.

    Re: No ice for bee sting

    Better than ice, try a cloth rice bag. Put it in the microwave to warm it up a bit and apply to the sting site. Helps move the venom out of the area by improving circulation. It is also soothing.

    I agree on diet modification (not only eating what you should eat, but also avoiding what you should not eat). Nutrition is important for healing.
