Insect Sting Allergy
A stinging insect allergy occurs when your body produces a certain immune response to the venom from insects. The most common insects to cause an allergic reaction are bees, hornets, wasps, yellow jackets, and fire ants.
Symptoms of an allergic reaction to an insect sting can consist of rash, swelling, coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea, and even passing out or shock.
The physicians at Highland Park Allergy and Asthma Specialists can help determine an allergic reaction from a normal response to an insect sting and develop an appropriate treatment plan.
