Aim to get out the stinger first. If it is at a point that you can use your hands, always use gloves. If not try using a credit card and quickly swipe it out. Then, numb the sting with an ice pack or ice in a towel. Or, combine baking soda and just enough water to create a paste and dab it on the sting. Or, try toothpaste. Both shrink and dry out the bite. As for losing pain, sometimes rubbing a hot bar of soap on the injection helps. Alert: If you start hyperventilating or having a hard time breathing, or if the stung area starts to swell like crazy, or anything abnormal happens, get an adult or have a friend find one. You are probably having a dangerous allergic reaction

You can tell if you are stung by a sweat bee if a large, translucent bubble appears on your skin. You can either let the sting heal itself which will take 3 days to 3 ... be a small mark for about two days, but that's it. Be safe with needles though!
