how to manage bites and stings caused by bees, spiders, jellyfish, and other creatures

People are asking how to manage bites and stings caused by bees, spiders, jellyfish, and other creatures.

Most bug bites and stings can be managed by treating symptoms with OTC drugs. For example, a cold compress can help with pain and swelling. Or an oral antihistamine (Benadryl, etc) can help with itching.

Bee stings should be managed by scraping off the stinger as quickly as possible...to minimize the amount of venom that's injected.
