Reaction to Bee Sting

On Wednesday I was stung by a bee beteen my eyes.  It caused considerable pain and local swelling of the area.  The next morning the area under my eyes and along my nose were swollen.  By the middle of the day my left aya was swollen shut.  I have been taking Benadryl and have applied ice since this happened.  Today I still have "swollen sacs" under both eyes and swelling along my nose.  The pain is completely gone but the swelling seems to persist and is becoming very uncomfortable Is there any thing I can do to help the swelling go away?

keep icing and taking benadryl.  you may need more powerful anti-inflammatories (steroids), or this may be turning into "cellulitis" (skin infection...bugs are gross).

you should probably have doctor somewhere look at it.  doesnt have to be an eye doctor.
