The Condiment for Bug Bites

Are you getting ready for a picnic or barbecue? Don't forget this condiment...and it's not just for hot dogs.

If you're at a picnic and you get an insect bite or sting, apply mustard to the area to help relieve the pain, itch and redness. You also can use ice cubes or a paste made from table salt and water to bring down the swelling (these are good remedies, but they don’t quite cut the mustard).

More help with pests...
