Well, I still feel caution is advised - my throat doesn't close up, but my swelling is ridiculous! The last time I was stung, I didn't swell much, but the time before that, and every previous time I can be stung on the hand, down by my fingers and my whole arm will swell up stiff, clear up into the shoulder. With a reaction like that, and the shear number of stings one must do, it's best not to push it to the point of having your throat swell up. Like you said, Blue, it's not for everyone - none of these treatments are. We just have to find what works for us.
Those that CAN use BVT seem to do pretty well with it from what I'm reading.
