It sounds like you are having a reaction to the bee venom. I would suggest putting hydrocortizone cream directly on the sting and taking Benadryl to fight the inflammation and to tame your immune system reaction.

Yes, bee venom, spider bites and even mosquito bites can make us feel anywhere from just out of sorts to having a bad case of the flu.

Keep an eye on the sting. If it gets significantly worse in pain or swelling, or if you start having breathing problems or feel any closing in your throat, go to the emergency room, but this is not likely as it probably would have already happened within hours of receiving the sting.
