That sucks. Hornets and Yellow Jackets are in the same family and when they signal the alarm they will swarm and are really aggressive. I'm sure the weed whacker scared the heck out of them.

I have been stung by both and they feel like someone is putting a cigarette out on your skin, but the pain goes away pretty quick with little swelling.
However, my daughter is very allergic to bee/wasp/hornet stings and she swellls up bad - we always have Benadryl/Diphenhydramine and and epipen handy (friking things are expensive!).

The docs said that the liquid benadryl is best, closely followed by the chewable tablets...but you have to chew them well. The pills are no good because they take too long to get in your system.

Maybe next time try some benadryl and see if it helps with the swelling and pain?
