[RC] Bee Stings, how long to ride? - Stephanie E Caldwell

Hi all! We suspect that Star got swarmed by Yellow Jackets Wednesday nigth.
She was covered in bumps from nose to flanks on her left side, stomach,
chest, some on her right barrel. It could have been hives, but since it
wasn't the entire horse my vet thinks it was insect bites. She had over 200.
He put her on Benedryl, and I've been bathing her with Aveeno until this
morning to take care of the itching. She seems lethargic and sore still. How
long should I give her off? I'm planning on going for a long walk tomorrow
and seeing how she feels!
