Pretty easy once you get the stinger out. Here's some good info from Mayo Clinic.

There are so many ways to do this so best to Google it and find some remedy that works for you , good luck.  Also if the area is swelling and you feel faint and are having trouble breathing, call 911 immediately as you're having an allergic reaction to it

  1. Wash the site of the sting with soap and water
  2. Hold ice to the area (with a cloth held between ice pack and skin)
  3. Consider taking Benadryl to reduce the itching, and Tylenol for pain relief.

If the swelling or pain does not die down after a few hours, or if your symptoms aren't localized (i.e. You have breathing problems or side effects that aren't related to the area directly around the sting) then seek medical attention urgently.

Make sure to get the stinger out, then you can apply a paste of baking soda and water to the area, will help the pain and the reaction.
