After effect from the sting:
An immediate sharp that felt like a hammer on my finger. Instant regret flashes across my mind as i pondered "how dumb can i get at times.." The pain intensified by the seconds and within 1 min, it was at the peak whereby i was doing nothing more than pressing the sting point as hard as i can with my other hand.
Thoughout the next 10-15mins.. pain that resembles "pins and needles" circulate at sting point. The numbness spread towards my right wrist within 20mins..
Slight swelling was observed after 25mins and the pain was reduced gradually..
At 1 hour after i was stung, i can no longer feel any pain. Slight redness around the sting area as was barely visible by the next day.
