two weeks ago I had three different stings on three different days. two while hives inspection (nasty swarm that I caught) , the third while gardening. the third was in my arm. I had a horrible and nasty reaction on third. I refused to take benadryl for the purpose of building my immunity. it was a bad mistake. my face swelled up, for the first time in my life I could see my sinuses vin the mirror. I had small pimple like things all over my body, and the itch was impossible to stop. I filled the bath tub with ice and sat. It wasn't long before I felt that I can no longer breath. ended up going to urgent care , got a steroid shot to stop the swelling. I got lectured by the doctor, and everyone I knew.
it was embarrassing.
the moral of this story you may want to start taking a benadryl pill twenty minuets prior to inspection. this is what I have to do If I want to keep working on my bees if there is to be a next time.
I hope you get well
It's like a book, I think, this bloomin' world, Which you can read and care for just so long, But presently you feel that you will die, Unless you get the page you're readin' done, an' turn another - likely not so good; But what you're after is to turn 'em all.
