I don’t know which works for bee stings, but acids are good for some things (vinegar) and bases for others (baking soda).  Google should tell you.

An antihistamine pill would also help.

There’s also topical Benadryl (antihistamine).  You can alternate that with the steroid cream.

Also, a warm tea bag placed over the sting can help draw out some of the venom (that’s what’s causing the itchiness)

Toothpaste works great for me.
