If you or a family member is allergic to bee stings and gets stung, remove the stinger and seek emergency medical attention right away. Do not rely on a natural bee sting treatment alone. Use an EpiPen (epinephrine auto-injector) if you have one.

Any person who is stung by a bee, needs to be monitored for signs of anaphylaxis (life-threatening reaction). About 3 percent of people stung by bees quickly develop this condition. Signs and symptoms of anaphylaxis include:

Shortness of breath
Feelings of faintness or dizziness

If there is any concern that a person is developing anaphylaxis, call 911 right away. You can also take over-the-counter Benadryl, but this will not stop the anaphylaxis; it will only slow it. You must seek emergency medical attention immediately for bee allergy.

1. Extract the stinger.

Cut a fresh onion in half and put it directly on the sting. This works quickly and reduced pain, swelling and itching immediately. I got relief for both bee and wasp stings. A nurse I spoke to told me she always carries an onion when she travels.

The BEST treatment for any sting or venom is electric shock. REALLY!! Get out your TENS unit and run it as high as you can tolerate and the effect of the venom will disappear within minutes. For many years snake bites in Latin America were treated by connecting a wire from a spark plug on an auto to the bite area. IT WORKED! http://www.nytimes.com/1986/08/05/science/the-doctor-s-world-new-shock-therapy-for-snakebites.html?pagewanted=all

One of the best treatments for bee stings and other venoms is o get your "Tens Unit" out and set it as high as you can tolerate. In under a minute you will be feeling fine as can be. This is the truth although the AMA works very hard to keep this unknown and to discredit it at every opportunity. The "antivenom" industry would dry up and blow away.
