Lol, It's been suggested to me before.
Fact or fiction?

I probably shouldn't be reading this since its been over 20 years since I have been stung by a bee on the bike.

It does bring up a funny story. I arrive home and park my car in the garage and go into the house. I noticed my wife had not brought in the mail so I go out the front door and to the mail box. Walking back looking at the mail something stings me on the hand. It was a wasp. I notice a yellow post it stuck to my front door from our post person telling me there is a wasp nest under my mail box and they almost got stung. if I would enter the house by the front door I would have seen the note but I always enter thru the garage.

I've never seen a jellyfish getting a golden shower after getting stung by a bee when out on a bike ride.

Crazy.


Back on planet earth, ensure whatever antihistamine you take is a non-drowsy one.

Yeah, I get them periodically under my helmet. Not fun. I usually get stung (not 'bitten') half-a-dozen times before I can get the helmet off. I keep a small antihistamine tablet taped to my bike, which will get me home before my eyes start to swell shut.

don't take the sting out with your fingers. it squeeze more poison in. Try an ID card for removing the sting.
