From Knox, Indiana, USA:

About two months ago, my husband, who has had type 2 diabetes for about two years (currently treated with insulin), got stung by around 30 bees, and he is allergic to them. Now, he is having a lot of pain in the leg where the stings were, it looks like a really bad rash and seems to be infected. Our doctor does not seem to have a clue.


This is a long time since the actual incident for this to be an allergic reaction. I would be concerned this is an infection that has persisted. Unfortunately, I am not able to see the wound to be of more help. I would be concerned he needs to be on antibiotics. Please have this followed up with a physician.
