You can cure stings in Animal Crossing: New Horizons by using medicine. If you managed to get away from a wasp or scorpion attack with only a swollen eye then you can use medicine to return your cheery demeanor. Open up the inventory menu and find your small bag of medicine and then select Take Medicine after selecting it.

First of all you'll need to have medicine in your inventory, so if you don't have any then head over to Timmy in Resident Services, the blue tent where the Nook lads live. Here you can buy basics for survival, including medicine which sells for 400 Bells each. We recommend you buy a pack of five medicines for 2000 Bells so you always have one on you in case you get stung again! Medicine can also be made by crafting a wasps' nest with clumps of weed. You'll need to get the recipe from a resident after being stung, first.

That's how to cure stings in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, now you don't have to be so afraid when trying to get your hands on wasp nests for crafting! If you'd like to know more about Animal Crossing: New Horizons, check out some of our other guides.
