Bee sting - Diagnosis and treatment - Mayo Clinic
Wash the affected area with soap and water. Apply a cold compress. Take an over-the-counter pain reliever as needed. You might try ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others) to help ease discomfort. If the sting is on an arm or leg, elevate it. Apply hydrocortisone cream or calamine lotion to ease redness, itching or swelling.
