Can't help with your caregiving.... but I can help you find relief for those nasty wasp stings... not folkflore because I use it all the time to treat stings. I get it from my local farm supply store because it's been years since I've seen it carried at a regular drugstore. There are 3 Tractor Supply stores in NH, but I suspect that the gas & time would be more hassle than ordering online.

It's a petroleum by product & smells like it... but apply to the sting ASAP to reduce the spread of the venom & cover loosely with gauze or tissue to keep it from staining fabric. If done within minutes of the sting, all you will have to deal with is a red spot that may itch a little. It is something I try to keep on hand in the house & barn.
