Insect bites - A Scream in the Night - Something Bit Me!
Insect bites can be nasty, and scary, especially if you don't know what bit you. If the person is sensitive to poisonous insect bites, the insect bite may swell up and become extremely painful. Luckily, homeopathy can provide very quick relief. When my own daughter was bitten by angry hornets, a couple of doses of Apis gave her quick relief. Apis is a common remedy for many types of insect bites, even if you don't know what bit you.
A friend of mine called me around 10 o'clock in the morning and told me that her daughter was showing some very odd symptoms. She told me that the daughter had woken up in the middle of the night with a scream. The mother ran into her room to see what was wrong, and the daughter was crying and saying that something bit her. The mother couldn't see any sign of an insect bite, or any bugs, so after sitting with her for a while, she put her back to sleep.
The next morning the daughter screamed again when she discovered that she couldn't get out of the bed. The left side of her neck was very red and swollen, and she couldn't lift her head from the pillow because the pain was too much. She couldn't even turn her head, so the mother picked her up, wrapped her in a blanket and drove her straight to the doctor. The doctor was stomped - he had never seen such an odd swelling, and he didn't have a clue what to do about it. So he prescribed tylenol and told her she would have to come back for all kinds of tests the next day if she hadn't improved by then. It didn't even occur to him that it could have been an insect bite!
The mother wasn't happy with his lack of diagnosis or with the bottle of tylenol, since she knew that his solution was only temporary at best, so she called me instead.
I came over to see her daughter who was lying in bed with her head and neck propped up with pillows. I touched the swelling very lightly with my fingertip, and she screamed in pain. She also seemed angry, and the mother said she refused to drink anything. I knew this girl, she is naturally very thirsty and loves hot tea, but this day she wasn't thirsty at all. I wrung up a rag in very warm water and put it on the swelling, and she threw it on the floor. Then I put the rag in very cold water and put it on, and she told me that felt better.
After studying the symptoms, I decided to give her apis, which is a remedy made from bee-venom. (In homeopathic form, even bee-venom is totally non- toxic, but the energy of the bee-venom can often reverse the effect of a nasty insect bite or sting, especially if she was stung by a bee).
The effect was amazing. Within about 5 minutes, she was able to move her head a little. Then the swelling started going down, and within an hour she became thirsty and asked for a cup of tea. The next day she was up and running again. She still kept her head in an odd angle, but it no longer bothered her too much. The second day after we started the apis, all her symptoms were gone.
We never did find out what kind of insect bite we were dealing with, but it didn't really matter, since the symptoms went away as soon as I gave her Apis. I suspect it could have been a wasp or a bee, or perhaps some kind of spider. Luckily Apis works for so many types of insect bites that the symptoms were relieved very quickly.
I no longer offer homeopathic consultations.
