Five on one day is my max. Hats off to you guys. Based on what you all are saying I'd better toughen up. I want to reach a point that I go thru 100 hives a day. I don't mind stings to most places other than my fingers and my head (ears, nose, around eyes). The ones on my fingers makes it harder to continue due to swelling. I've considered purposely getting two or three stings each day to help reduce my reactions.
ray, i've taken two below the eye this year and a few on the top of my head. i don't even notice stings to my fingers that's probably where i get the least reaction. it's the soft places that hurt.
i also believe that bee stings are good for arthritis so i usually try to get stung a few times every couple of days.
