Unlike most other bees, the bumblebee's stinger isn't barbed which means it normally isn't left in the skin and can repeatedly sting. Uncommonly the stinger can become lodged, ripped from the bee and remain stuck in your skin. Should that occur -Remove stinger ASAPby scraping along edge of skin w credit card.

In brief: Benadryl (diphenhydramine) etc.
Bee stings can be painful, but unless there is a serious allergic reaction, they can be treated easily at home.
Take some benadryl, tylenol, (acetaminophen) and ice the wound to decrease swelling.
