Caption: Bee sting. View of reddening and swelling on a woman's hand (at right) due to a honey bee (Apis mellifera) sting. The sting has been removed from the wound, and the surrounding skin is red and inflamed. Insect stings cause pain, redness and swelling for up to 48 hours. Treatment includes removing the sting, washing the wound and taking painkillers. Some people are allergic to insect stings; after the immune system is sensitised to insect venom, another sting will provoke an allergic reaction, leading to potentially fatal anaphylactic shock. Some satisfaction can be gained from the fact that the stinging action is always fatal to honey bees.
