9 year old, stung by bee, arm swelling, heart racing. Normal symptoms or allergic reaction?

Hi, my nine year old daughter got stung by a bee about an 1 hr and 30 minutes ago. Her arm is swollen where she was stung. She has been active since, jumping on the trampoline and such. We are now getting ready for bed and her heart rate is racing. Is this normal? Should I be concerned that this is an allergic reaction? thanks

Thanks for Query,
Bee bite usually causes local reaction in the form of inflammation & oedema .
She may gets pain at site along with itching.
Usually it is subsided by its own.
Heart rate racing has nothing to do with bite may be due to jumping.Thanks
