How to Remove A Bee Sting

A bee usually leaves behind a sac of venom and a stinger. Removing it immediately stops more venom from entering. Cleansing the site wards off infection. Keep the area clean during the healing process, which may take up to five days.

Warning: Do not pinch or pull the stinger; this can inject more venom.

What You Need

  • Ice cube
  • Warm water
  • Soap

Preparation And Use

1As quickly as possible, remove the stinger by gently scraping it off with your fingernail, a credit card, or another stiff object.

2Grasp an ice cube and rub it briskly over the stung area for a full minute.

3Wash with warm water and soap.

4If you’re stung on the arm, remove rings and bracelets before swelling occurs.
