The Dangers of Insect Stings
When you are stung by an insect such as a bee, wasp, hornet or yellow jacket, these insects inject venom into your body. For most people, an insect sting only causes redness, swelling and itching.
However, for patients with allergies to these insects, the venom can cause severe life-threatening reactions. An allergic reaction to an insect sting can involve your whole body and can start very rapidly after you are stung. Possible symptoms include:
• Stomach cramps
A more severe reaction can cause shortness of breath, drop in blood pressure and even death if emergency treatment is not obtained. For testing to see if you have bee sting allergic reactions in Oak Brook, IL, contact Oak Brook Allergists.
