Stung by bee on finger, swollen hand, itching, pain, tingling. Medical attention required?

I got stung by a bee yesterday around 5pm on my finger , by time 8pm rolled around my finger and hand was swollen. I went to bed because there was no other reactions and when I woke up my hand and fingers were still swollen but itchy and a little pain where the bite is. Today my hand and finger went down a little bit but is still itchy and it is tingly and like an achy pain. I am wondering if I should go see a doctor or just ice it?

Hi and welcome to HCM
As your finger still swollen and pain, itching, tingling persists it is better to get medical attention. It can cause allergic reaction if not treated properly. Meanwhile put ice and take anti-inflammatory drug like motrin to reduce pain and inflammation.
I do hope that you have found something helpful and informative and I will be glad to answer any further query.
Take care.
