What does a person do about bee sting allergies?


Answer by  MTGrandma (405)

Remove the stinger and keep Benadryl or another antihistamine on hand. If it's just a redness and swelling to the sting site, use cold presses to help with the inflammation.

The most obvious thing is to avoid being stung. They may also have to carry emergency anti-allergy medicine (called an "Epi Pen") in case of stings.

If a person who is allergic to bees may go into a coma if stung. See your dr. immediately. In the meantime, take an antihistamine to counteract the effects.

An Epi-pen containing a dose of epinephrine is prescribed for a person allergic to bee venom. It is self-injected following a sting. An ER visit may also be necessary.
