    Funny, I’d gotten bit on my foot by some kind of bug. I suppose it was a spider, but I didn’t see it. Barely left a mark, didn’t get a blister or anything, but boy did it hurt! And it didn’t wear off in a few minutes like other stings, it got steadily worse through the day. I read this, and put a vinegar poultice over the painful area. It helped a whole bunch and didn’t hurt any worse. But it still hurt some, so I put ice on it. That knocked it out completely. The next day, no pain and no sign of any bite. That won’t work for the big things like snake bites I’m sure, but it works nice for spiders, scorpions, bees, yellow jackets and that sort of thing.
