If you suspect your baby has been stung by a bee, remove the sting. Never squeeze the sting with your fingers as this can release the poison in to your baby. If you are unsure or not confident, rush to the nearest clinic for support. 

Mild bites can be treated by washing the area gently with soap and water, followed by applying a damp cloth and dabbing it. Do not use medications on your own without consulting a doctor.
