Poor Ben got either bitten by something or stung by something on the playground this evening. It may just be an ant bite but I am not sure. His finger started to swell and turn red. We went home and I put him in a cool bath with powdered chamomile and a drop of lavender essential oil to help sooth his hand. After the bath I rubbed some oil infused with calendula and arnica on this whole hand. It did not seem to be bothering him so I hoped all my TLC helped.
