My Three year old daughter stepped on a bee five days ago. i pulled the stinger out within two minutes of the incident. last night she woke up crying. she kept rubbing her foot on the bed as her foot itched. this morning it swollen and red. im curious if this is a stage of a sting or if i need to seek medical attention for her. She is acting like her crazy, wild, and silly self.

Welcome to HCM,

Symptoms of your child suggest allergic manifestations to bee sting.

I advice yo to give antihistamines which are available over the counter, and ice packing to the area which will help in reducing the symptom.

If the symptoms doesn't disappear then consult your doctor for proper evaluation.
