SIERRA ALLERGY ASTHMA AND SINUS CENTER

Stinging Insect Allergies can be a serious and potentially life-threatening condition that occurs when the immune system overreacts to the venom injected by stinging insects such as bees, wasps, hornets, yellow jackets, and fire ants.

Symptoms of a stinging insect allergy can range from mild swelling, redness, and itching at the sting site to more severe reactions such as hives, difficulty breathing, swelling of the throat or tongue, dizziness, and anaphylaxis.

Accurate diagnosis and management of stinging insect allergies are crucial for preventing serious complications.

Our allergists specialize in evaluating and managing stinging insect allergies through a comprehensive assessment of medical history, allergy testing, and consultation with insect venom specialists when necessary.

We provide personalized treatment plans tailored to each patient’s unique needs, which may include carrying epinephrine auto-injectors (EpiPens), as well as education on insect avoidance strategies and emergency action plans for managing allergic reactions.

Additionally, we offer allergen immunotherapy (allergy shots) to desensitize the immune system to insect venom and reduce the risk of future allergic reactions. By partnering with our team, you can navigate stinging insect allergies safely and confidently, ensuring optimal protection against potential stings.
