Treating stings from Africanized bees is much the same as treating a common bee sting.
Keep the affected area below the heart.
If the stinger is still in the skin, remove it by gently scraping against it with your fingernail, a credit card, or a knife. Be careful not to squeeze the stinger. The venom sac still will be attached and you will inject additional venom into the area. Be sure to remove the venom sac.
Apply cold compresses to relieve pain and swelling, but do not apply ice directly.
If it becomes difficult to breathe, call 9-1-1.
Itching should quit within a few hours. If it persists beyond 2 days, or if signs and symptoms of an allergic reaction occur after an insect bite, you should be seen by a doctor.
Signs & Symptoms of an Allergic Reaction
