Swollen after bee st. The swelling is due to histamine release and influx of fluid which is going to take time to resolve. Having said that, if it feels better elevated there is no reason it can't be elevated.

Yes. If the bee sting just happened, and you have made sure the stinger is out and taken an antihistamine for the swelling, you could also take ibuprofen for the pain. If that does not help and/or there is any redness or swelling going up your leg, you should call/go to your doctor. Read more...
