What are the reactions to a bee sting?
Reactions to bee sting are localized for most people. The normal reaction can be painful and reddened skin. It can be accompanied by swelling and itching. These symptoms mostly disappear after a few hours. However, there are cases that these symptoms might persist and may affect the skin near the site.
How to relieve bee sting reactions?
First thing that you need to do is wash the site of the sting using soap and water. Use soap with a low irritant formula. Apply ice or a cold cloth to reduce the swelling. You can also use spray creams that contain anesthetic and antihistamine to help reduce swelling. In worst cases oral antihistamines may be needed. Page updated 21/11/17 5:06:14 a.m.
