Baking soda and a few drops of water and make it into a thick paste. Apply directly to the sting, you should feel almost instant relief.

Make a paste from baking soda and a little water, apply it to the sting, and let it dry there, this will pull the stinger out, and will alleviate some of the pain. If you think you are tightening up in the chest and the ear swells up, or you get hives, you need to call an ambulance, as you might be allergic. I benadryl will help you out too, you should take one. Hope this helps, good luck to you.

You can apply some generic hydro cortisone cream, but if you don't have any on hand mix a palm full of baking soda with about a table spoon of water. You can spread this around the area to relieve some burning and itching.

Well you can put cooling cream on it but that stings a little, but don't try to get the stinger out.
