Remove stinger: Remove stinger and attached venom sac quickly; wash with soap and water. Apply cold compress or ice to relieve swelling. For itching, apply steroid cream or calamine lotion. Be alert for systemic allergic reaction which requires emergency care: shortness of breath, wheezing, tight throat, dizziness, rash; these require antihistamine and oral or IV steroid, rarely cardiac rescuscitation.
