what does an infected bee sting look like?

Can be difficult to : Tell the difference. The tell tale signs of infection may be seen from the sting and venom injection itself and may not actually bee :) an infection. Redness, pain, increased warmth and swelling are the tell tale signs of an infection. You may see fever as well. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) usually offers some relief to a bee sting...I recommend you see your doctor asap if you have a concern.
