In brief: Elevate, ice, wrap

Best approach for anyone with bee sting is remove stinger, elevate the stung body part, apply a cold pack, and wrap with elastic bandage to reduce swelling.
Local pain, swelling and redness is normal. If these travel more than a few inches from the sting or don't improve within 2-3days, then seek care.
