Hi Anon, sorry to hear about your bee sting. Sometimes there's an immediate reaction right away and cometimes the reaction can be delayed for several days. You did look for and remove the stinger, right? If the rash, redness and itching continue to be bothersome then you  can try  an over the counter antihistamine to provide relief. Another remedy is to use a mixture of baking soda and water or you can use calamine lotion. If your reaction should intensify, such as having difficulty breathing, then you need to seek emergency medical attention right away. Hope that helps!
