Obtundia Cream and Wasp Stings
Before I could get away one of the wasps stung me on the back of my upper arm. It started to burn and swell right away. I am super sensitive to these bites. Not allergic but mindful to pay attention to the sting and make sure it doesn't get out of control.
Since I was a small child we have put Obtundia Cream on all bites, stings, burns, scrapes, pimples, any type of skin irritation. I flew in the house and applied a big dab of cream on the sting. The stinging stopped within a minute, then I was off with Harley in tow to rid the window of the wasps so I could continue with my efforts to wash the windows.
As I mentioned Obtundia Cream has been a part of our family medicine cabinet since I can remember. This has never been a product I could get by just dropping in the drug store we always mail ordered it. I had opened my last reserve tube to remedy the wasp sting and was ready to make an order when I sadly found Otis Clapp Company was sold and the new company is not making the product any longer.
When I got in touch with the manufacturer they said they didn't even have anything that was similar.
So, I guess it is so long old friend, we will miss you!
