Removing the sting and apply baking soda paste to the skin. Try to get some into the sting wound. The sodium bicarb will react with the bee venom and neutralise it. You should get some relief withing a couple of minutes.
Apple cider vinegar is the most effective venom neutraliser, but if it is not available or you prefer not to use it, baking soda is good. Use it as quickly as possible after the sting
