    So, at work on thursday I got stung by a bee right in the middle of my left palm. I've been stung before and it hurt a minute or 3 and then all was fine. This time? Holy shit, my hand swelled up, hurt like the devil and I took some benydril to kill the itching. Had a gig last night and had to adjust how I played and thought of omitting some material but didn't.
    Anyone get stung and have a similar reaction before? 72 hours later and it still significantly itches but at least the swelling, pain and redness is subsiding.

    I walked right into the ass of bee a few years ago and got stung on the forehead. I looked like Kruge from Star Trek for a few hours.

    Take some water and baking soda and mix it into a paste and let it sit on there. May be too late now. But I remember this working when I was younger. Maybe I'm full of shit I don't know.

    I still have a perfect 35 year record of never being stung by a bee or wasp. I'd like to keep it that way. Nasty little suckers!

    So I guess I've got nothing for you. Sorry.

    I worked in a cemetery when I was a kid. There is a certain kind of bee that builds their nest in a hole in the ground.
    I would be doping along cutting the grass, totally out f it, and run over the nest and get stung by 10-15 at a time.
    It got to the point where I had to keep an Epi-pen on-site. When I got stung, my eyes and hands puffed way up
    and I got covered in itchy red splotches. Not fun.

    Ditto, but twice as many years. That said however, I have noticed over the years that you can "develop" allergies. Could it be that once was not a big deal, now is?

    You can develop allergies later in life that you didn't have earlier. You didn't go full anaphylactic, but you should see a doc about this and look into getting an Epipen. If what I'm thinking is right and you're developing bee-sting allergy, that can be dangerous (as in fatal) later on down the line.

    Go to a doc, see if that's what's happening, and get that Epipen if needed. Don't sleep on this.

    Hope all's well with you otherwise, JD.

    I was stung many times as a child, with no more than the usual discomfort. Then, as a teen, I was fixing the barn roof for Gramma & put my foot in a yellowjacket nest; 19 stings in the time it took to jump out of the hay loft (I did not say climb out) & run to the house. I developed a rash & was little short of breath.
    Managed to avoid further stingage until I was 48; this time I was working the yard & stepped in a hornet nest - 4 stings to the ankle. Went in & told Her; She said "That's too bad" & went back to the TV, so i went back to the yard. 10 minutes later I reeled in, bounced off a wall & a chair, and hit the floor. By the time the paramedics arrived - less than 5 minutes - I was unconcsious with 99% airway blockage.
    Yes, the allergy can develop over time, dammit.

    I've always wondered what Joey looked like without mascara and tattoos. Cutest man date ever.
