In brief: Bee Stings
Benadryl (diphenhydramine) will help with itching.
And some people suggest making a paste of baking soda and meat tenderizer, and applying it to the site.

In brief: Cold compress
Unless you are unusually sensitive to the bee venom (bee-sting allergy), cold compress over the sting site is all you need to do.
Shoul you experience breathing difficulty or hives, immediate medical attention should be sought.

In brief: Yes
Usually no treatment is needed.
If red or irritated, or pain. You may use advil or tylenol (acetaminophen). If itchy, you could try some hydrocortisone.
