In brief: Depends on severity

Oral pain medicine and cool compress or icepack can help.
If there is any trouble breathing, widespread rash, tongue swelling, seek medical attention asap.

In brief: Antihist/anitinflam

Bee venom induces a response that is inflammatory and causes histamine release.
Therefore, antihistamines (benadryl, zyrtec) and anti-inflammatories (ibuprofen or aleve) taken 3times/day for 3days (one time/day for zyrtec) will reduce the response to the venom.
