Glad you’re okay, that can really be freaky

Just got a glimpse of the back of my thigh where they stung. It's a big fat swollen pouch. Weird.

Yeah, histamines! They’re flushing the mild poison from the stings / bites. Bees, or yellowjackets? Get some Benadryl, stat! And just plain ice can really help, too. Ice bath?

And watch out next time.

You may not be allergic yet, but getting stung by a swarm can be dangerous down the road. Depends on how your body handles histamines. Hope you feel better soon!

Yeah I think Yellowjackets the little assholes. Thanks guys!

Those are the worst! Hope the stings don’t get itchy.
