Tricky Bees-ness.: You should be cautiously concerned. Apply a towel wrapped ice bag to the sting area. Make sure the stinger is out and clean the sting site with soap and water. Ibuprofen might help with the pain and inflammation. If there is a history of this type of reaction with bee stings, then be prepared to deal with any escalation of symptoms by visiting the urgent care.
