Insect bites and stings
insect bite1 Usually an insect sting causes a localized allergic reaction.
  • Stings from a bee, wasp, or hornet are painful rather than dangerous.

  • Stings in the mouth or throat are potentially dangerous because they may obstruct the airway.

Signs of insect sting:
  • Pain, redness and swelling which starts within minutes to hours after an insect sting.
  • Allergic reaction may progress to anaphylactic shock
