In brief: Ice, benadryl, (diphenhydramine) TDAP

Remove the stinger if present.
The sooner the better get ice on the area. Take some Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and ibuprofen, and make sure you get your tetanus booster in the next few days if you're due. If you start getting widespread hives, rash, difficulty breathing, faint - go to ed or call 911 right away. Good luck!
