Hmm, that's how I react to bee stings but it's right away...any chance it got infected? I don't think an allergic reaction would take days to show up.

I often go to the homeopathic remedy Ledum first, for stings- helps take down the swelling and the itching. Apis is another remedy for stings- it actually is made from the honey bee venom. But I would go with Ledum first. You can get it at any natural food store that sells remedies. Usually they just sell a 30c potency, which is fine and you can follow the dosing instructions on the tube. 


Those are the go-to with stings, and remedies are totally safe for pregnancy! 

I am a homeopath, offering acute and constitutional consultations for children, babies, and parents. Long-distance treatment is easy, either phone or skype! I also am certified to offer Homeoprophylaxis, a vaccine-alternative program. Message me for more details.
