Relief from a hornet sting?

My skin is Fragile as is me being sensitive battling Cancer and all the Chemo and brutal side effects. I have been stung by a hornet. It hurts is hot and itches. I tried immediately a baking soda paste and some salve my DD has for Bee stings. Nothing helps. I'm in unbearable pain already and this is one more to my leaning tower of health. Any tips or good ideas? would be so grateful for any relief or ideas. Your kind favor to reply is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
