Insect Stings

Stings are annoying, but they can be dangerous for people with insect sting allergies.

insectstings

There are 3 types of reactions to stings:

Local Reaction

Swelling and redness is confined to the area of the sting. Generally, these aren’t dangerous.

Large local reaction

Swelling, redness, and itching may spread across a large area. These reactions generally aren’t dangerous. However, you should contact you allergist if the impacted areas are very large, or overly bothersome to you.

Systemic reaction

This allergic reaction may include itching, hives, or swelling away from the site of the sting. This can progress to anaphylaxis, a life-threatening reaction that can cause difficulty breathing, dizziness, or cardiac arrest. This reaction calls for the use of an adrenaline injector and seeking immediate medical attention.

If you’ve experienced an allergic reaction to an insect sting in the past, you’re likely to have a similar or worse reaction in the future. That’s why it’s important to see an allergist for evaluation and treatment, which can reduce your risk of a future reaction to less than 3%.
