Have you or a family member suffered a sting from an insect? If you spend time outdoors, this is very common, and in many cases, you will only have a mild reaction to it. However, if you suspect yourself or a family member is suffering from an allergic reaction, the board-certified physicians at Somerset Urgent Care are ready to assist you. No appointment is needed to see one of our doctors or access any of our services. If you suspect you having a severe or anaphylactic reaction to an insect sting, immediately call 911 for assistance.
When I am stung by an insect, what are the symptoms?
In most cases, you will suffer redness, swelling, itching, and sometimes pain. These mild and moderate symptoms subside after a few days, but we can speed up the process if you visit our facility. If they linger for more than a few days, consider seeing one of our doctors so they can take a better look at the affected area.
What should I do if I’m stung by a bee or wasp?
Stings from these insects can be incredibly painful but are not serious in most cases. Any pain and itches should go away in a few days, but we are available if you are concerned about it. In many cases, over the counter selfcare ointments will be enough to alleviate minor to moderate symptoms. If you have a bee sting allergy, these stings can be potentially life-threatening. Visit our facility if you suspect you are having an allergic reaction or call 911 if you have an anaphylactic reaction to a sting.
How do I know if I’m having an anaphylactic reaction to an insect sting?
Common symptoms of an anaphylactic allergic reaction include:
• Hives, rash, or itchy skin
• Swelling of the mouth or throat, or of another body part
• Pale skin, or skin that is red and warm (flushed)
• Wheezing or trouble breathing
• A tight feeling in the chest
• A feeling of anxiety
• Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea
If you are suffering from a few of these symptoms, chances are the allergic reaction is minor to moderate. Visit our center today, and we can help treat you with these symptoms. If you have a known allergy to an insect sting or are experiencing breathing-related symptoms, call 911 immediately for medical assistance. A hospital emergency room is far better equipped to manage the symptoms related to an anaphylactic reaction from an insect allergy.
