    How do you remedy a bee sting if you cant find the stinger?

    I was recently (TODAY) stung by a bee or wasp (didn't see the culprit stung me while I was walking) little sneaky creep! I can't locate the stinger and my pinky is swollen. What do I do? A lady sprayed it with windex and tobacco on the supposed stung area. Help!

    All bees do not leave their stinger behind. Place a paste of meat tenderizer and water on the area and take an antihistamine such as benedryl.

      Thanks! When does the swelling subside?
