Got Bee Sting Will Skin Affected
No: Your skin will be fine in a few days. Initially, you will have a red, itchy bruise but this will go away. Just don't pick the blister or subsequent scab and don't scratch.

If you're allergic to bee stings or pollen, however, see your doctor because you may get a more involved localized reaction. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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. If you get stung on the foot and get hives on your arms, or your throat swells or you start to wheeze - those are allergic reactions. See an allergist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Use EpiPEN, (epinephrine) go to ER: You may have no problem with this, but if you have an allergy or you think you do, my advice is to get to an er asap. They will give you Epinephrine so you don't go into anaphylactic shock, which can close your airway and kill you. After this episode is over, you might want to see your doctor and get an epipen, (epinephrine) which is a shot of Epinephrine you can give yourself quick if this happens again. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
