Re: Reaction question - apitherapists would have answers?
I have no personal experience to back up what I say, just from what I've read and heard around here and there. It sounds to me like you are getting more allergic as time goes on, and that each time you get stung it is quite possible it will be this bad or worse as time goes on. I hope I'm wrong. Maybe someone else with personal experience with this strong or stronger of allergic reaction will respond to your query.
I myself am fortunate, as I'm of the group of people that each time I get stung my reaction is less and less. I've gotten to the point now that even stings around my eyebrows or temples don't swell much at all. You on the other hand seem to fall into the other group of people that each time they get stung, the reaction is at least as bad as the last time and that over time the reactions get worse.
20+ years, raise my own queens, feed when needed. I treat, but have not perfected varroa management yet.
