In brief: Depends,?? Rxn??
Bee stings can be simple issues that most can ignore.
If the stinger remains scrape sideways to remove it & any trailing bee tissue that may have more venom. A cold compress decreases local pain, antihistamines can reduce swelling or itching. Major sting reactions can start with progressive swelling, abdominal pain, cough, difficulty breathing. If so a 911 call/er visit/e[pinephrine would be needed.

if you've shown severe reactions to bee stings in the past, your doc can prescribe an Epi-pen for immediate use after a sting to give you time to get emergency services. Do NOT try driving yourself to ER; call ambulance.

In brief: A few
Bee stings may be treated with oral Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and a paste made from a mixture of baking soda and meat tenderizer.
