Bee, wasp, yellow jacket, hornet, or fire ant stings are the insect stings that most often trigger allergies. However, most people are not allergic to insect stings and may mistake a normal sting reaction for an allergic reaction.
Pictures of the Disease
Symptoms of Bee Stings
Bee stings can produce different reactions, ranging from temporary pain and discomfort to a severe allergic reaction. Having one type of reaction doesn't mean you'll always have the same reaction every time you're stung.
Treatment For Bee Stings
The treatment of venom allergy involves the management of an acute reaction, as well as people who have had allergic reactions to bees in the past should call 911 and implement emergency measures when stung. These patients should be prepared to treat themselves upon experiencing a painful bite in the presence of bees. Physicians prescribe epinephrine, an adrenalin shot, for those with known or suspected allergy symptoms from bee contact.
Prevention For Bee Stings
Scrape the area with a fingernail or use tweezers to remove it. Don't pinch the stinger that can inject more venom.
Ice the area.
If you were stung on your arm or leg, elevate it.
Remove any tight-fitting jewelry from the area of the sting. As it swells, rings or bracelets might become hard to get off.
