Overall I like this response, it seems sensible and is not over reaction.
But have a couple questions.

"I have been stung 5 times and only once had any reaction".

What was the reaction?

"I put a tight rap around the area to slow blood flow to heart,
put in ice immediately to constrict capiliaries"

What was the wrap? Please expand on this.

How did the Ice affect the area when it was already tightly wrapped?

"and drink lots of water".

IMO F water. But then its your remedy, not mine.

"Worked every time but the numbness can last up to 6 months".

I wonder if this treatment increased the numb time?
6 months is way longer than I experienced.
