If You Have Been Stung By A Bee:
Bee stings are harmless for most people.
The normal reaction to a bee sting is a bit of temporary pain at the location of the sting, some itching and some swelling. Some parts of the body are more sensitive than others and swelling is most noticeable on the face.
The allergic reaction to an insect sting varies from person to person.
Symptoms of an allergic reaction can include itching, hives, flushing of the skin, tingling or itching inside the mouth, and nausea or vomiting. The most serious symptoms include difficulty breathing or swallowing, hoarseness, swelling of the tongue, dizziness, and fainting. These types of reactions usually occur within minutes of the sting but have been known to be delayed for up to 24 hours.
