Bee stings: Remove stinger. Apply cold compresses to bite. Give Benadryl (diphenhydramine) by mouth. You can make a paste of meat tenderizer and apply to bite or you can use a hydrocortisone or Benadryl (diphenhydramine) cream.

But if your child has swelling of lips, tongue, hives or wheezing, take them to the ER
