Post BEE BITE - Nervous I might be allergic

If you're allergic to a bee bite, how soon would you know it ? I got bit by a bee today and it hurts like hell !!! I'm really scared of having an allergic reaction. I got bit on the hand and my hand is very red, but not too swollen yet. It happened about 2 hours ago. Do bees carry the west nile virus ?

I am really scared....

Don't worry about it.

You'll 99% or more of the time have an allergic reaction to an insect sting with 30 minutes if its going to happen.

Mosquitoes carry west nile, not bees.
