A common reaction to a sting from a bee, hornet, or wasp can involve localized swelling and redness. When people are allergic to these insects, hives, wheezing, or anaphylaxis can result. To prevent these type of reactions, especially during the summer months, allergy shots/venom immunotherapy may be recommended.

Approximately 20% of people will have hives during their lifetime. Hives are raised, colored, and often itchy bumps or welts that can appear anywhere on the body.

Skin tests are done to identify the cause; however, sometimes it is unknown. Medications are often prescribed for hives.
For some people, they will have a reaction to a medication. This reaction could be mild to moderate or life-threatening, including anaphylactic reactions. We will review your medication reaction history, and perform tests in our clinic to identify the medications you are allergic to.
