My bee sting is still red and itchy, a week after being stung. Is this bad?

Asked by sikelianos (1 points ) January 3rd, 2008

I was stung by a bee on the palm of my hand one week ago today. On my wrist, a few inches below the sting, there’s a super-itchy, semi-bumpy red rash. No pain though. Should I be worried?

my bee sting also itched pretty bad for about a week after the sting. However, it went away short after then.

I wouldnt be worried.

No this can be part of the healing process. Have you ever experinced a healing sore itch? Its the same thing.

You should definitely see the doc. If it feels warm or hot, or if it gets any bigger, or you start seeing red lines near the wound – get to the ER.
