First bee sting? Normal?
« Reply #20 on: September 05, 2005, 09:53:01 PM »
I heard somewhere that allergies can develop from minimal or large one time exposures; usually continuous moderate exposures can reduce sensitivity instead of increasing sensitivity. I've found that if I let myself get stung several times per week, I react less to the stings when I've let several weeks go by between stings.

Around here people swear that if you chew up a little tabbaco and spit it on the bite, it will stop hurting and your done with it.
