Kate had a small swelling (nickel sized, just past the upper lip line by 1/8 inch) on her face this morning. At first I thought it was a new fatty deposit (she has a small one on her side) as it was mushy to the touch.
I think now it's a bee or wasp sting as it became larger and firmer as the morning went on. I also considered a bad tooth infection but the gum is normal and there is no odor in her mouth.
We gave her a benadryl which took down the swelling just a little, but she still has a good size bump.
She is eating and drinking normally, just sleeping more than normal due to the benadryl.
Any suggestions for a topical in this instance?
How do you stop these maniacs from chasing and snapping at insects? (Although they are the best fly catchers on the face of the earth–-if your window screens hold out:D )
