I thought I would start a track of posting regarding, stings, body locations of stings, times of year or other factors that make your stings react differently.
I can be stung on the head and have just a sore spot, this is all year.
however, if I get stung on the hand by a stinger, that is immedietly painful, I can expect a very painfull and swelling location, specially if it is my hand.
If my leg, not so much so.
Three days ago, I was stung in the hand by not a bee, but a stinger left behind by a dead bee, near the hive, it was stuck in my palm...it was totally painful, immediatly...and I knew it was going to be a butte. My hand, top and bottom, swelled 5 hours later, and the skin remained tight and the hand huge for 2 days.
My muscles in my arm and hand still hurt.
Today, same hand, I combed a bee out of my hair to keep it from stinging my scalp, and it stung the middle webbing of my fingers on the same hand I had stung 3 days earlier..this time it immediatly itched, and was only a small itchy feeling..
so....it seems I have reactions that react differently. Aparently by either the race of the bee, (these were at two different hive locations and races...) what they are polinating...and how much venum is in the sack.
What say you all?
