    Bee is for bicarb of soda.... bee sting acid bicarb alkaline so neutralises.
    incidently its vinigar for a wasp sting.

    Has she been stung before? asking cos you really need to watch that her face and head dont swell, my Millie is allergic to bee stings and has to have antihistamine jab every time it happens cos her head swells so much.
    Dont want to worry you but Millies swelling always got worse at night, please keep a close watch on her.

    You could give her a piriton if you have any to help the swelling go down.:)
    Hope she's okay.
