What To Do While Being Stung:

Sting First Aid:
Contact your physician for help and answers.
Venom is injected quickly (less than 1 min). Pull or scrape stings from skin being careful not to apply pressure on the sting causing venom injection. Once all stingers have been removed clean the area like any other wound to prevent infection. Apply ice to relieve pain and swelling. Seek immediate medical attention if necessary. If an infection develops and/or swelling is persistent, seek medical attention.
