If allergic to bee stings, would you be allergic to honey and bees wax?

In brief: No.

A bee sting allergy means you are allergic to the bee's venom, which is not in either honey or beeswax.
It is certainly possible to be allergic to honey or beeswax (especially if you have a bad pollen allergy), but that's a completely separate allergy, unrelated to bee sting venom.
