I got a bee sting on my toe now my foot and entire leg is swollen. It has been 19 hours now. It's progressively getting worse?
What would cause a bee sting sensation in my big toe? I do have a bunion that is giving me problems. Thanks.
Bunion: Hi Bunions can cause these types of pains. It depends on how severe the bunion is if you possible irritated it recently. If you notice that certain movements of your big toe make it worse or cause the bee sting sensation, probably it could be the bunion causing some ligament strain in your foot. Hope this helps.
