My son got stung in the ankle 2x two days ago and it has swollen up and is black and blue from the sting. Looks like a really bad sprain. Anyone ever seen this. He is not allergic been stung many times before. I am figuring time will clear it up. Any thoughts.?

Just had the same thing happen to me last week. Proped my foot up when I could. Three days good to go. Didn't hurt like a sprang thank god.

Yeah, I get like that. So now I keep a supply of prednesone (prescription medicine -- steroid) around to kill the swelling. Now instead of 7-10 days of misery it is only 2-4.

Re: Black and Blue Ankle from Sting

Swelling is gone done. now the lovely black and blue ankle will be here for another week or two. A bit tender still.
