swollen bee sting

I was stung in the left calf yesterday.  The area is red and swollen and very painful.  My ankle/calf area is hard.  The area is about 8 inches.  My toes are beginning to tingle, and it hurts my ankle when I walk.  I have have had dizziness problems with Benydryl in the past.  What can I do?

I'd go to the ER
but try taking an anti inflamitory like ibprof if you can and I know this may sound crazy but try cleaning the affected area with Listerine

Have you removed the stinger? "The stinger should be removed with a scraping motion by using the rigid edge of a credit card or a dull butter knife. Never attempt to pull out the stinger using fingers or tweezers, since this will result in the injection of more venom."
Try google and but in  swollween bee sting treatment
