So early Friday afternoon I got stung by a bee on my pinky. Too this day it is still swollen and hard. And itches like crazy. Is that normal? Haven't been stung in so long. Plus I have a whitish bump on the finger (see picture) it hurts so bad and is warm to the touch. Don't want to be a dork and go in if this is normal but if not then I wanna make it stop :/

You need to get to the doctor. That sucker is infected.

I think it's pretty normal. Maybe try some cortisone anti-itch cream?

My stomach looked like that for several days after being stung.

Benadryl. And put some meat tenderizer on the sting site.

Have you taken any Benadryl? You may have to take it for several days to see a result, just don't take it more than a week.

Maybe it's my phone. I'm out in the sun and it looked like it was.

Make some thick oatmeal (just enough for 2-3 applications). Put it on the affected area and leave it one for 1/2 hour or so. Repeat 2-3 times. It should help with the swelling and itchiness.
