Yes, calamine lotion can offer some relief of the pain and itching caused by bites from bugs, bees, mosquitoes and fleas. If you are stung by a bee or a wasp, put an icepack on the sting to relieve pain and swelling. Calamine lotion may also help. If you have any questions or concerns about allergies to bee stings or medications, talk to your doctor.
