Make a paste of either meat tenderizer and water or baking soda and water and apply to the sting site. Make sure you have removed the stinger (scrape it with either a fingernail or a credit card, don't use tweezers as it only puts more of the bee's venom into your body). Keep the area elevated (above your heart) this keeps circulation going, helps it heal faster, and keeps the swelling down. There are also some over the counter medications that work well.
