I'm sure he'll be fine. When dd got stung by a bee she was very sleepy later that afternoon. Not sure if it was due to the sting or due to the fact that maybe she wore herself out crying.

Don't wait for ringback. Go straight to Drs or A&E, especially is he is drowsy.

Has he been stung before? I think you can only react the second time you are stung.
Hope he's okay.

Ha to go to A & E as he just wanted to sleep and it was more painful.

He is 10 and it is the second time he has been stung.

He is okay, just localised reaction.

DS2 however...
