Wow.  Scary.  Just make sure the stinger isn't still in.

That's terrible.  I hope it doesn't get too swollen.

Ouch that's awful. Hope you feel better soon. Never been stung by a bee.

DH keeps getting mosquito bites. I guess he's allergic to them. He ends up with red infected looking places from the bites. They also itch like crazy.  They don't bother me. He's also allergic to bee stings.

One of our dogs once got stung by something on her poor nose. She was having problems breathing. The Vet said give her Benadryl.

   Maybe you should go to Urgent Care for an allergy shot.Many years ago I got a mosquito bite on my eyelid & the next morning it was swollen shut.I ended up in the ER.

   Good luck. I hope you feel better soon.Try some ice for the swelling.

Re: Summer Stings

I know how it is.  I traipse around in the woods and meadow every day and I think I have every imaginable type of sting or bite somewhere, along with a good dose of chiggers and poison ivy.

 

I love this time of the year, though.  Makes me feel like a kid again.

DH had bites all over from Chiggers. I had never heard of them. He removed some old shrubs. Guess the shrubs or soil was full of chiggers. At first we did not know what caused it. I searched online & came across chiggers. He asked the pharmacist & they sold him a jar of Chiggerex.

He seems to have really bad reaction to all these different critter bites.

@Nightowlz , my DH always gets chiggers and they really irritate him.  I am going to look into this "Chiggerex" stuff you mention.  He won't take anything stronger than aspirin for joint pain but he has a closet full of lotions, creams, and ointments for minor irritations.

 

He has a nice Q-tip stash also.

You will have to ask the pharmacist for it. He has bought it twice & both times it was behind the counter. I don't know why?
