Got stung by bee. Developed red and puffy eye. Could this be an allergic reaction?

Hi, my husband was stung by a bee a week ago today. His eye is still puffy and red and he has also developed a few lumps on the same side of his face. Could this be an allergic reaction , swollen glands or something else? He has an appt tomorrow afternoon with the doc and antihistamines are doing nothing. Thank you, Kylie

Hi Kylie,
welcome to HCM.
This is definitely an allergic reaction. I suggest local application of calamine. And get in touch with your doctor for anti allergic treatment.
