Stinging Insect Allergy
|Summer is a fun time for you and your family to spend outdoors but it's also the time of year for stinging insects. When most people are stung by an insect the site develops redness, swelling and itching. However, some people are allergic to insect stings which means the person's immune system overreacts to the venom produced by the insect.|
If you had a serious reaction to an insect sting call 238-2501 or 1-800-332-7156 to make an appointment with an allergist/immunologist for proper testing, diagnoses and the best form of treatment.
