I don't think that is unusual, maybe a bit long for the swelling but not by much. Bees sting, got hit several times today, my bees were hungry and I was working bare armed. Will swell a bit. If you get a strong allergic reaction better get to a doctor quick.

Yes, some people are allergic and swell up allot.

I get around 40 or so stings a year,..hardly shows swelling. I also work them in shorts and t shirt. You probably can build up immunity when you let them have you?

Some allergic folk have done just that under a doctors guidance. Wouldn't try it alone.

I heard it can go both ways sometimes. Some people actual develop a more severe reaction after being stung a lot. I do not know if this is atypical or if it can happen quite regularly, but it's something to be careful of.

Bees don't bite. They sting. And it's not because they are hungry.
