Or something... I got stung by another yellow jacket today. That makes four stings this summer. I think the last time I was stung I was in my 30s! I hope I don't develop an allergy.

No, I was out shopping and by the time I got home it didn't hurt too badly.

I was stung by over 100 bees one time and never had more than violent vomiting (that's how the body got rid of the poison). I've also been stung by several wasps. Sometimes I think it is the perfume, deodorant or what the clothes have been washed with that gets 'them' motivated. @BarBaraPrz .

Wow! You're lucky that's "all" the reaction you had.

@BarBaraPrz Yeah, I know. My head felt like it was fire. They were trying to get inside my mouth, nose and ears. I took a Benadryl real quick so I think that helped.

Calamine lotion or a paste of baking soda works very well on bee stings.

Ouch, I don't believe there is anything you can spray on yourself to keep them away either. If you had an allergy you would know it.

This one had somehow hitched a ride on the collar of my jacket, which is yellow, so I had a yellow jacket on my yellow jacket, no lie.

You won't develop an allergic reaction. It's too late. Your body has already developed your immune system to better protect you from those stings. But that doesn't mean to risk it. Take precautions. Sorry to hear about the stings. They are truly painful.

Well, I know multiple stings all at once can be fatal even if one is not allergic. That much venom is not good.
18 Oct 17
@BarBaraPrz well yes, too much at once is dangerous.

The yellow jackets, not that many, are out and about here too. I hope you do not develop an allergy too.

Oh no! I've not been stung by one. I hope you're not allergic, too!
