He handled it fine.  I'm sure if it was the first time he had been stung,  it would have been much more traumatic.  The fact that I don't react and hoot and holler when I get stung set a positive example for him and he actually thinks it makes him tougher when he gets stung.  He was actually more concerned with his "looks" than with the pain.

I guess since my blood must be part bee venom by now I rarely swell up anymore.

Sorry she got you near the eye Annette.

Rob your little one, handsome kid, looks like a tough lil sob!

I would really like to see a sticky post somewhere that addresses this topic.
I frequently read and hear from the general public various declarations about bee stings.

Most everyone that gets a bee sting (especially first timers) will have:
1. A local reaction.

Most people that have been stung before will have reaction to the venom in the sting that results in:
2. An alergic reaction.

Some folks will have swelling in the limb or larger general area of the sting will have:
3. A hyper-reaction.

A small percentage of people will be stung and have their throat swell shut or have organ failure, this is:
4. A Systemic Reaction or Anaphylactic Shock.

Here are a few points to consider:
A. In my local area, approximately 1 in 1000 homes encounter a swarm of bees in a given year.

B. The CDC reports that less than 1% of people fall into category 4.

If you do the math, the odds are about 1 in 100,000 that you would be both deathly allergic and have a swarm of bees invade your property.

It never fails, deathly allergic folks are always the one that have the swarm of bees that lands in their back yard.

I am considering mailing a survey to everyone in town about to which degree they are allergic.
The ones that reply they are deathly allergic, I am going to approach to ask if I may hang swarm traps in their yards.  I think this would greatly improve my likelihood of catching swarms before they have an opportunity to invade wall voids or attics. In my area, that should net about 60 swarms.
There is nothing new under the sun. Only your perspective changes to see it anew.

Hey Jeff, good to see you back!

All of my customers well, at least the majority are deathly allergic to bee stings...

at least in their own minds!

No seriously, there must be some kinda bee venom allergy club out there, everyone seems to be a member! :-D :shock:

Annette, those are hilarious! I'm thinking, hmmm, is that expression on her face pain from the bee sting? Or pain from wondering what the photo of the bee sting will look like as the camera clicks?

Thanks for sharing. Been there :)

Bactine liquid, benadryl liquid, or maybe even sunburn medicine with aloe vera and lidacaine.

The last one I know is very soothing, you can get it at the drug store.

you are working from the wrong side. you have to go from inside out. Like alcohol for example. drink enough and itching will stop! Creams, ointments wont work! I like red wine w/ cigar. Always work'd for me!

If you really wanna get him good have someone from the police come over for a domestic violence call. Have any cop connections? Oh that would be such wicked fun! They would need to handcuff him though and at least put him in the back seat and make him sweat awhile! :-D
