interpreterofmaladies asks:

I have to do a planning lab about the effect of papain or meat tenderizer on wasp bites. I was wondering why papain cures wasp bites?

etutor answers:
Papain is a protease enzyme. I believe that it breaks down the enzymes in the sting fluid that cause the inflammatory reaction.
