Re: Bee Venom and Scar Tissue
Well the swelling that is normal from a sting is fluid that builds up at the sting site. That fluid normally dissipates through normal channels through tissue. When there's an insult to tissue, such as an injury, the channels that normally drain fluid do not work as effectively. Consider the swelling that a fracture causes: a broken humerus, for example, will cause swelling on the whole affected arm for months while the disrupted "drainage" heals.
I suspect the increased density you're feeling is just fluid that is taking longer than normal to dissipate because of the scar tissue. I'm not familiar with stings' success for scar tissue, but I haven't really seen ANY info about it so I can't really opine one way or another.
