Thank you for the question.I am Dr.A.S.Desai and I look forward to assisting you .
A bee sting would incite an allergic and inflammatory response . It can cause severe pain and swelling around the eye. You can take Tablet Zyrtec, 10 mg , one tablet at night for its anti allergic effect, for 5 days. You can take tablet Tylenol 500 mg, one tablet twice a day for 2 to 3 days to reduce pain and swelling. Since the sting bite is near the eye but not on the eye, there is no need for any other eye medicine to be put in the eye. Your symptoms should subside with this treatment eithin 4 to 5 days.
