Yellow Jacket Stings

I swell for days at a time when I get stung by a yellow jacket and the pain is awful.  Any suggestions?

Yes. You have to see a physician and get both antihistamines and a prescription for oral prednisone.

The problem with sensitivity is that the next time, it can getn worse and you can die. As in end-of-life. No more ice-cream sodas and trips to Las Vegas and stuff like that.

Insect stings in general can be relieved by topical steroid cream and a paste of monosium glutamate (Accent for cooking) in water.
