Homeopathic remedies are prescribed on the basis that in a tiny dilution like cures like, so while the very dilute homeopathic remedy may help, the raw product is often best avoided.

Below are the strongest indications of Apis Mellifica based on traditional homeopathic usage. Indications have not been reviewed by the FDA. If symptoms persist always consult a medical professional.

Acts on cellular tissues causing oedema of skin and mucous membranes.
The very characteristic effects of the sting of the bee furnish unerring indications for its employment in disease. Swelling or puffing up of various parts, EDEMA, red rosy hue, stinging pains, soreness, intolerance of heat, and slightest touch, and afternoon worse are some of the general guiding symptoms. Erysipelatous inflammations, dropsical effusions and anasarca, acute, inflammation of kidneys, and other parenchymatous tissues are characteristic pathological states corresponding to Apis Mellifica. Apis acts especially on outer parts, skin, coatings of inner organs, serous membranes. It produces serous inflammation with effusion, membranes of brain, heart, pleuritic effusion, etc. Extreme sensitiveness to touch and general soreness is marked. Constricted sensations. Sensation of stiffness and as of something torn off in the interior of the body. Much prostration.
Better, In open air, uncovering, and cold bathing.
WORSE, heat in any form; TOUCH; pressure; late in afternoon; after sleeping; in closed and heated rooms. Right side.
