How long is normal for a bee sting to feel sore and hot to touch?


I have searched Google and do not find an answer regarding timing. I was stung by 2 bees (whatever kind leaves the stinger) while mowing grass Saturday morning. They are still swollen, sore, and hot to the touch. Is there an expected amount of time they will stay like this. I'm ready for my calf to feel normal again.

    I have been taking both Benadryl and Ibu. I had to pull both stingers out. Did nothing except sit afterwards because allergic to wasps so didn't know my reaction to this kind. Should have tried to get some venom out.
