When a bumblebee or a honeybee attacks, it leaves its stinger and attached
venom sac in the skin. In most cases, the sting creates only slight pain,
swelling and irritation. It is more of a nuisance than a concern. However,
look for signs of an allergic reaction, such as swollen eyelids or hands,
difficulty breathing or wheezing, dizziness, fainting, nausea, vomiting and
the appearance of a hive-like rash. For these symptoms, go immediately to
the emergency room or your doctor's office. The bee sting can be fatal in
people who are allergic to its venom.

Tips for Avoiding a Bee Stings
- Wear light-colored, smooth-finished clothing.
- Avoid perfumed soaps, shampoos and deodorants. Don't wear cologne or
perfume. Avoid bananas and banana-scented toiletries.
- Wear clean clothing and bathe daily. Sweat angers bees.
- Cover the body as much as possible with clothing.
- Avoid flowering plants.
- Check for new nests during the warmer hours of the day during July,
August and September. Bees are very active then.
- Keep outside areas clean. Social wasps thrive in places where humans
discard food, so clean up picnic tables, grills and other outdoor eating
- If a single stinging insect is flying around, remain still or lie face
down on the ground. The face is the most likely place for a bee or a wasp
to sting. Winging or swatting at an insect may cause it to sting.
- If you are attacked by several stinging insects at the same time, run to
get away from them. Bees release a chemical when they sting. This alerts
other bees to the intruder. More bees often follow Go indoors. Outdoors, a
shaded area is better than an open area to get away from the insects.
- If a bee comes inside your vehicle, stop the car slowly and open all the
What to Do if Someone is Stung
- Have someone stay with the victim to be sure that the person does not
have an allergic reaction.
- Wash the site with soap and water.
- The stinger can be removed by wiping a four-inch gauze pad over the area
or by scraping a fingernail or a credit card over the area. Never squeeze
the stinger or use tweezers. It will cause more venom to go into the skin
and will injure the muscle.
- Apply ice to reduce swelling.
- Do not scratch the sting. This will cause the site to swell and itch more
and will increase the chance of infection.
- If the victim is having a severe allergic reaction, seek emergency
- Epinephrine is given by injection to stop allergic reactions.
Consume foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids that promote skin healing and
reduce inflammation, such as fish (salmon, cod, mackerel). Ground
flaxseeds, avocados and wheat germ are also recommended. Eat green orange
and yellow vegetables at every meal. These foods are packed with vitamins A
and C, which will speed your skin's recovery from the inflammation.
Foods to Avoid
Sugar worsens the inflammatory response. Stay away from refined sugar
products, including cookies, cakes, sweet baked goods and sodas and eat
naturally occurring sugars, such as those found in fruit, in moderation.
