If you keep bees you are going to get stung once and awhil. What you might not know is that relief from bee stings is available from some unlikely sources.
If you do get stung, first make sure that you extract the stinger and clean the area. Removing the stinger as quickly as possible will help reduce swelling and itching later on, but be careful that you do not leave any part of the stinger in the wound. Most treatments will work best if applied immediately, although some will help to relieve itching the next day or days after.
