Thanks for writing to us.
It is normal to have a large bump and neck stiffness after a bite of bee. These are all local reactions to the sting venom and these will subside gradually over next 5-7 days. You can take an oral antiallergic and do a hot fomentation for symptomatic relief.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
