Insect Sting Reaction

Allergic reactions to insect stings can occur from honeybees, hornets, wasps, yellow jackets and fire ants. Those reactions are usually due to the venom injected in the skin.

Symptoms of a reaction include: Swelling, itching, hives, difficulty in breathing, drop in blood pressure, loss of consciousness. If you have experienced any of these symptoms we can provide testing (skin and blood) to diagnosed an insect sting reaction. In the case of a positive test, we do provide allergy injections as a treatment for insect sting allergy.
