What to do if stung?

Remove the stinger as soon as possible. Localized swelling, pain, and itching are all normal reactions. Cool lotions or compresses can help relieve the pain and swelling. If you have a prescription for an Epinephrine autoinjector due to allergic reactions, administer it immediately after you are stung. If you have hypersensitivity reactions to either bee or wasp venom, contact your physician immediately. You can also contact the CSU Health and Medical Center with any concerns at (970) 491-7121.
