I got tagged on the head today. I needed to add a box to my 2nd stongest hive as a; their boxes were fully drawn and filled with brood/nectar/pollen. Now there's 2 deeps and 3 mediums on that stack. Anyway I figured I could do it while it was cool this morning (60) and just slip the box on top. One tagged me on the head and within minutes my hands and feet itched like mad. Within 20 minutes my palms were red and within 1/2 hour I had hives at every joint on my body, under my arms, my neck and face, hands and back. I've been stung before; 2 days ago on the hand and 3 weeks ago on the temple with no reaction at all. Wife insisted I go to the ER and they gave me Steroids,Bedadryl, and Pepsid. They insisted on the benadryl even though I told them that stuff makes my heart race so sure enough my heart rate went from 62 to in the 80's the instant she administered the IV lol. I could tell she was worried so I told her, "at least I'm in a hospital" to try and put her at ease. Anyway I'm , all cleared up now feeling better just tired from the medicine and I have a script for steroids. I think I could have taken a benadryl here and slept it off but the wife wasn't having any parts of it. My breathing was never affected. Rain for the next few days so me and the bees will rest awhile. I've got lots of bee boxes to assemble!
