Venom contains a mix of chemicals. Wasp stings are primarily alkaline. Theoretically, you can neutralize the venom with an acidic solution, such as apple cider vinegar or lemon juice. Some experts, however, doubt the efficacy. It may be worth a try. If the lemon juice makes the area sting more, wash it away.
What You Need
- 1 teaspoon (5 ml) apple cider vinegar or fresh lemon juice
