Hi there ...

Thank you for the question ...

Immediately after bee sting you may have pain , redness , swelling , itching at the site of bite .

In most of the cases you may have only above mentioned symptoms .

In some cases when there is allergic reaction that extends someone can have hives , body rash , breathing problem , but this is less likely with single bite .

it would be good to have Tab Benadryl 25 mg twice a day for 5 days along with application of local Hydrocortisone cream that will prevent itching , redness .

So start Tab Benadryl .

Regards ***** ***** luck .
