Insect Venom Allergy

Stings from the insects such as hornets, wasps, honeybee, yellow jackets, and fire ants are known to cause the allergic reactions to the venom injected into the skin. However, most of the people are not allergic to the insect venom, but sometimes the pain from the sting may cause them to mistake a normal reaction for an allergic one.  The harshness of an insect sting reaction differs from person to person based on the types of insect toxins. A normal reaction will result in swelling, pain, and redness confined to the sting site. But a large-scale reaction will result in swelling that extends beyond the sting site which can persist for two to three days, corticosteroids and antihistamines are sometimes prescribed to lessen the discomfort. During the summer and spring months, people with allergy are not the only ones wary of wasps, bees, other insects. These belong to the Hymenoptera order of insects, and their stings cause itching and painful swelling in non-allergic individuals.
