Insect Sting Allergy

Allergy to honey bees, wasps, hornets, fire ants

For most people, an insect sting means a little pain and discomfort. But some people may have itching and hives all over that may progress to a serious allergic reaction (anaphylaxis). Their immune system overreacts to the insect’s venom.

Most allergic insect sting reactions in South Texas are caused by fire ants, paper wasps, honeybees, or hornets.  We can help you verify the diagnosis and can provide life-saving immunotherapy that can help prevent such serious allergic reactions.
