Lemongrass oil works wonders for me, that and like others have mentioned plenty of water. I don't use Gatorade or similar products because it is sweetened with corn syrup (I have cut that out of my diet almost entirely), instead I drink lots of just water and eat nutritious food. I know this is more of a long term fix, but in the short term drink more water and use lemongrass oil.

Wait a minute...I'm confused. I have shot my Dad's Marlin bolt action rifle. It has a tube magazine and it shoots .22's. The rounds I loaded into that Marlin had pointed bullets. Tez, can you further explain this reply?

CENTERFIRE tube fed rifles never use pointed bullets unless they are the new hornady lever lutions ammo

Oh, yeah. Thank you. I forgot about centerfire vs. rim fire. Now I'm embarrassed.

Thats why I said "most"... In addition to the Lever-lution ammo, Ive seen pointed .30-30 bullets used in single shot guns and the rim of the Label has a small groove for the point to ride in..

I don't know what I got bit by but the bite is now a purple bump and the skin is dying and peeling off. There are just a lot of wolf spiders around. And I thought I saw one the other day.
