I got stung by something yesterday while I was mowing my back yard; right through my long pants. 
I now have a huge, red welt on the outside of my right thigh, a bit more than halfway up. I just got back from the doctor's office. I'm supposed to keep it iced and take prescription-strength Benadryl. (Which means I have to go get the prescription later.)
I didn't see what stung me, but I was mowing clover with honey bees, bumble bees and wasps around. It didn't hurt as much at first a last year's yellow jacket stings, but has since become much worse. I'm actually limping. 

Looks like I'm missing Saturday night gaming, again...

Okay, for my nasty insect sting the Nurse Practitioner I saw this morning wanted me to take Benadryl, but twice the usual 25mg dose. I already had some of that, but she wrote a prescription for the 50mg version. However, the pharmacy I use didn't have any of that, so they gave me twice as much of the 25mg. However, since that's non-prescription strength, my health insurance wouldn't cover it. So I wound up paying full price for something I already had plenty of at home, just in a prescription bottle. :-(
