In brief: Yes

You should be evaluated by a physician for symptomatic relief and to make sure they do not become infected.

In brief: The

The first step to treating a bee sting is to remove the stingers.
Bee stings will be painful for the rest of the day. Once removed, it is appropriate to apply cold compression to help with pain and swelling. Some people are allrgic to bee sting venom and can experience an anaphylactic reaction immediately following exposure to the venom. (this does not seem to be a problem for you). It is normal to feel pain for the rest of the day, and swelling will subside over the next week. Any swelling that seems to be spreading or any pain that is intolerable is worthy of a call to the doctor.
