Hi,
Thanks for query,
Nothing to worry,
take anti histamin like cetrizine for 2-3 days.
Inj.tetanus toxoid to be taken but that inj. you might have taken as it is advised during pregnancy.
Apply zinc calamine lotion on affected part.
Ok and bye.

Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

I understand your concern.

You had the bee sting yesterday afternoon, and now you have a swollen hand, this means you don't have to worry about the bee sting any further. The swelling will persist for day or two and might itch a little bit, but that is nothing to worry about.

You can rest assured that this single bee sting is not going to cause any problem to you or your baby.

Hope I have answered your queries satisfactorily.

Do get back to me if you have any queries.

Regards
