Almost a week has gone by since the date of this post, i hope you improved or are now under the care of a physician. For you or anyone reading this post if you are stung by a bee and you have the above symptoms, it is likely due to an allergic reaction. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) can be tried one to two tablets every 4-6 hours. If this does not work and the area worsens seek medical care.
