Venom anaphylaxis : If you had an immediate reaction other than at the site of the sting such as hives, breathing, consciousness, blood pressure, gastrointestinal, or heart problems you orobably had insect anaphylaxis. That is an acute, potentially life threatening immediate reaction. You probably need an auto-injector with epinephrine, information about sting avoidance and evaluated by a bc allergist for venom it.

A 38-year-old member asked:

Any such thing as a delayed allergic reaction to a bee sting?

Bee sting allergy: Venom does not cause a delayed reaction, it causes an immediate reaction. What you have is undoubtedly an infection. Whether it is an infection that requires medical treatment, or one that you could treat yourself by applying a topical disinfectant like tincture of iodine. If a reaction continues see you local doctor.
