Bee Sting Treatment Guide
Hornets, wasps, bees, and yellow jackets are often feared for their stings, and it is important to know how to treat stings properly, because some people have very extreme allergic reactions to these stings. Reactions vary from person to person, but treatment is the same for any of these stinging insects.
How to Treat Bee, Wasp, Hornet & Yellow Jacket Stings
So you want to know what to do for a bee sting? Well, bee stings, wasp stings, hornet stings, and yellow jacket stings produce similar mild reactions in most people. These include mild itching irritation, redness, swelling near the sting site, and pain.
Follow these methods to treat bee stings:
Extreme allergic reactions (anaphylaxis)
Sometimes, people have very strong, dangerous allergic reactions to bee, wasp, hornet, and yellow jacket stings. These reactions can be so severe that they can sometimes, if not given attention, cause death. A few in a thousand people will have this severe reaction. These reactions include: breathing problems, swelling of lips and throat, swelling away from sting site, faintness, confusion, rapid heartbeat, hives, and nausea. If you or someone else is experiencing any of these symptoms, seek immediate medical attention. If you or someone else has a history of anaphylaxis – even if they are not exhibiting any of the above symptoms – seek immediate medical attention or use a sting kit (with an epinephrine pen).
