This works really well with small children, as it relieves the pain abd doesn't hurt to apply. As a child, I was terribly allergic to bee stings and my mother always used this, and it always worked.
All you need to do is get some baking soda, quite a bit of it, and add enough water to form a wet paste. Apply it generously to the sting and allow it to dry. It's simple and it really works!
