Pregnant. Bee and desert ant sting on ankle, swollen. Pain in ankle and difficult to walk. What to do?

Hello, My wife and I were in the desert of Anza Borego California yesterday where we got overrun with bees. My wife got stung with one bee on her right ankle, and a couple of large desert ants. Since then her ankle has been in significant pain, and it is difficult for her to walk as a result. There is little visual swelling or evidence of injury. I must not that she is 6 months pregnant. What can or should be done? Darryl

Thanks for using the HCM. I am happy to address your questions.
During pregnancy as far as possible you need to avoid taking drugs. For bee sting just chek whethere the the bitten area has any bee sting (thorn like). If present you can if possible remove it. put cold sponging(ice pack) over the bitten area. For further management you can consult your obstretition.
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help. Thanks get well soon....
