Yesterday, my friend and I worked a nasty hive and I got stung twice. One was through my suite into my hip. Its a little red by what concerns me is a bee got INTO my suite and stung my on the thigh. I didnt have time to get the stinger out and now it is really red and the redness expands to the length and width of a football and it itches. I have never been alergic to bee stings. I also have never left the stinger in either. Ny thoughts are that since I was stung on the thigh which happens to be a sensative place anyway and that the stinger was left in and which means more venom that is why it is so big.
