Bee sting. Sickness, fever. What can be done now?

My 7 year old daughter was stung by a bee yesterday. We did not realize for about 30 minutes and then removed the stinger. She was fine for the afternoon and about 5 hours later started to feel sick. This morning she woke up with 100.7 fever and her foot hurts. She has been stung before with no reaction. Should I take her in to see the doctor?

Hi Holbrookfamily

Bee sting is not too dangerous unless it causes anaphylactic reaction which is immediate.
In your daughter's case you may go for antipyretics like paracetamol and antihistaminics like pheniramine.....

If the symptoms persist then may need antibiotic course.
nothing to worry too much
best wishes
