i got stung in by a bee and it swelled up alot and wont go down how do i get rid of it?

Lord S
poke it with a pin, if that doesn't work see a doctor

Ok, this is the PERFECT solution: If you have any clear nail polish, coat the bite up with it (you can use any kind of nail polish, but clear is best), and then wait a couple days. It should go down, but if it doesn't, slice a piece of potato, and just put it on the bite, and hold it there for about maybe 10-15 minutes. If that doesn't work (which it also should!) put toothpaste over it. It will go down!! Good luck with that!! :o)


go to the above for remedies...

you can get some ice and put it on it or you can just wet it with a peace of tishue....

You can breath, right? If so, you don't need to go to the hospital.

Get ice or an ice pack, wrap it in a TOWEL (dont apply directly to skin), and hold it against the raised swelling. Do this for like 10 minutes at a time. Do it for a couple hours, you should be fine.

When I would get stung by a bee my mom would always give me some benadryl and then mix up baking soda and water and put the mixture on the sting. It's been a long time since I've been stung but from what I remember, It always seemed to work. Good Luck :)

My sister has the same problem with bees and mosquitos.
An antihistamine like Benadryl or calamine lotion should be good. Also try an ice pack and you should feel better :)

You need to make sure you got the stinger out of your skin. You can get it out by putting mud on it and let it dry. That will pull it out. If you can't get some mud, you can do the same thing by mixing a compound of flour, water and salt (you'd have to experiment, I always use mud) and it will do the same thing. Once the stinger is out, you should ice the swelling to make it go down. Keep an eye on it though. If it stays swollen for more than a few hours you may be having an allergic reaction and should see a doctor.

natural route: tea tree oil and lavender with an ice pack

other: take a benedryl and put some bug bite/sting relief spray on it.


lil bit
My husband went to the ER - and they gave him an injection of Decadron (steroid) and an antibiotic. The doctor told him to take Benadryl (as directed on the box); he also gave him a prescription for an oral steroid which he stayed on for about 6 days; and another prescription for an antibiotic which lasted 7 day.

People who don't go to the ER - tel me that they take an antihistamine - like Benedryl - or maybe Zyrtec,

did you get the stinger out? how long ago did you get stung. apply a little bleach it will take the sting right out. the bee sting is an acid, the bleach is a base. it will neutralize the bee sting

Did you pull the Stinger out? Make sure it is gone, apply a Cold Compress for the Swelling and then take something like Benedryl.

i got stung and it started bleeding and i have a scab about 1 month ago, i still have it. when i got stung, i couldnt feel my arm and it really hurt in a strange way that i cant describe in my shoulder, i think im allergic. haha


either get a bag full of ice and put it on it.
or put baking soda that helps thats what i do.
where did you get stung?
are you allergic?

It may seem a little gross to you but depending on the size, bee sting swells are actually edible and extremely tasty, just hack it off with a butter knife and bake in oven 10 - 15 minutes at 325*, best served buttered,

I would put a cold compress on it and take an anti-inflamatory it should take the swelling down.

It you had this type of reaction, it will take a couple days to go down. Ice on it immediately will help some. Benedryl will help with swelling and itching. But time will be your best bet.

I get this... they say it's not technically an allergy but an extreme sensitivity. First, be sure the stinger is OUT of your skin. If not, use a credit card or tweezers to remove it. After that, apply cold compresses and try an antihistamine. that should resolve it. If you have any other symptoms of breathing difficulties or tongue swelling, get to ER ASAP!

Benedryl and check to make sure the stinger isn't still there.

You need to go to the doctor immediately.. you are allergic to the sting.. call your hospital and demand to speak to a nurse who can give you directions of what you must do!

Bee stings are nothing to play around with and they aren't any fun either...

I'm sorry you are going through this.

You're going to want to take some benadryl and apply a cold compress.

Pharmacies have over the counter treatments for all kinds of stings check them out.

how long was it swelled for? it should last about three days. just put ice on it.

It will eentually go down b itself, but if it isnt a little bit then you should probably get that checked by a doctor.

Go to emergency or put honey on it if it does not go down than go to the emergency anyway.

rub asperin on it (arm must be damp)

sprinkle salt on the sting...

Ice it for 10 mins...

Put on some kind of ointment...

Make sure its not an allergic reaction...

take a benadryl or any antihisthemine

put baking soda and water on a wash cloth then put the wash cloth where u got stung. it will not only make it go away, it helps with the pain.

that girl
take some benadryl and put ice on it.
the stinger might be still in there. u should check for the stinger place duck tape over area then pull off and see if it comes out.
better yet make a paste of backing powder and water let it sit on area and if its there it should come out.
