    I don’t get it if the body’s natural reaction is to sent blood to the site
    why do we want to stop it surely it has to be 4 a good reason

    @42NDElite Honeybees have barbed stingers. Bumblebees like to sting you
    more than once.

    to jump out of the sting me on the leg in mid-air and i almost

    Itches! Was over 24 hours ago! I’m highly allergic to wasps but looks like
    hornets aren’t so bad. Big difference in my body’s reaction. If it had been
    a wasp I’d have a balloon for an arm.

    I feel ike amputating my hand right now. It is excruciating! The hornet
    stung me because some idiot lady started swingin at it at a concert I was
    at last night. I saw it come at me and land on my hand, but it didn’t leave
    a stinger. The sting felt like someone stuck a hot poker in my hand. I iced
    it and now I am putting benadryl cream on it and taking benadryl. I think I
    will make it. I’d love to press charges on that little fying demon.
