Insect Venom Allergy

Stings from the insects such as hornets, wasps, honeybee, yellow jackets, and fire ants are accepted to cause the allergic reactions to the venom injected into the skin. However, most of the people are not allergic to the insect venom, but sometimes the pain from the sting may cause them to mistake a natural reaction for an allergic one.  The sternness of an insect sting reaction differs from person to person based on the types of insect infections. A normal reaction will outcome in swelling, pain, and redness cramped to the sting site. But a large-scale reaction will result in swelling that extends beyond the sting site which can persist for two to three days, corticosteroids and antihistamines are sometimes recommended to lessen the discomfort.
