Bee stings are very common & are serious for those who are allergic to them.  When a bee stings you, it leaves the stinger in the skin. The stinger will continue to pump venom into the body for up to 20 ins, so it is important to remove the stinger as quickly as possible.  The sting may be painful for a few hours.  Swelling and itching may persist for a week.

Treatment of bee stings
The first step is removal of the barbed stinger from the skin. The method of removal is less important than the time it takes to remove the stinger.   Use a SCRAPING motion with a credit card or a finger nail to remove the stinger.  Using tweezers may, in fact, squeeze more venom into the body.  Once the barb is removed, an ice pack will help to reduce swelling and   inflammation. The sting will often leave a red, swollen welt on the affected area.

Note: The recommended relief of the Red River Valley Beekeepers Association is to swab with household ammonia
