No: Allergic reactions to bee stings are characterized by symptoms away from the site of the sting. If all of the reaction to a sting - blisters, swelling, redness - are all directly connected to the site of the sting, it's a large local reaction.

What causes swollen ankles ("cankles") after labour? Didn't get swelling during pregnancy, only after.
Labour type?: How did you deliver? Cesarean? Vaginal deliver? It may play a role sometimes due to stirrups against the feet in vaginal delivery.

Likely not: As long as they were cooked well, there is little likihood of any harm to the baby. Also, i'm assuming you didn't eat 500 pounds of them either.The caution with fish and seafood during pregnancy is mainly related to mercury contained in them, and if you just ate them a few times in normal quantities, you did not put the baby at risk.

Stung by wasp three days ago. No bad reaction. But woke this morning to large red area around sting and itching. Any advice?
Hydrocortisone cream: apply to the affected area 2-4 times daily as needed for itching. Taking an over-the-counter antihistamine may also be helpful. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) will probably help with the itching and redness but may cause sleepiness. Loratadine (Claritin) and cetirizine (Zyrtec) are non-sedating antihistamine which can be taken daily and may be helpful. If not helpful, you may need a prescription medication. ...Read more
