Avatar m tn I don't think I would've taken a chance with the beehive in the first place. I don't know if the poison ivy story is really true, because I have become allergic to wasp stings, so I wouldn't have even attempted to annoy the bees in the first place. That said, I do know that stinging nettles are also used medicinally for allergies. But, you don't have to get stung by the nettles to get the benefits from it. You buy it dried at the herbalist or even the vitamin store.
Avatar m tn I honestly don't think so, Toots, but again, I have to say that I am NOT a doctor, so I really can't give you a difinitive answer. If someone is highly allergic to bee stings, to the point that anaphylatic shock is a REAL possibility, then the fact that they are anxious when bees are around goes without saying. But I don't THINK that that anxiety would bring on anaphylatic shock any quicker.
2147300 tn?1369689688 Hey Rog sorry about the bee stings. I guess there is not truth to the old adage, "They are more afraid of you than you are of them, so let them bee" I hate to hijack this thread but with two entomologists on board ... I live in Southwest Texas and I can't resist saying how incredibly overwhelming the fire ants have been this year. I cannot believe how amazingly resilient these ants are! Boy-o-boy do they ever work together! Check out this image: http://claycoleman.tripod.
Avatar f tn Bee stings really did not work. I had several friends who tried it back in the day. No one kept up with it.
Avatar m tn The most likely triggers for acute urticaria are allergies to pets, latex and foods, bee or wasp stings, allergies to medicines, viral infections, dental and sinus infections, fungal infections, blood transfusions and vaccines. The cause of chronic urticaria is often more difficult to identify. Most cases are idiopathic and are caused by the body's unexplainable development of antibodies to itself (auto-antibodies). I hope it helps.
Avatar n tn The most likely triggers for acute urticaria(hives) are allergies to pets, horses, latex and foods, such as shellfish and nuts, bee or wasp stings, allergies to medicines, viral infections, dental and sinus infections, fungal infections, blood transfusions and vaccines. Take some oral antihistaminics like Benadryl (cause drowsiness) or Claritin and apply calamine lotion as it helps in soothing the skin.
Avatar f tn The most likely triggers for acute urticaria are allergies to pets, horses, latex and foods, such as shellfish and nuts,bee or wasp stings,allergies to medicines,Viral infections, such as glandular fever and herpes, dental and sinus infections, fungal infections, blood transfusions and vaccines. In your case the bee sting can be responsible for these hives. The mainstay of treatment of hives is antihistamine which may be necessary for prolonged periods (in excess of 6 weeks).
Avatar n tn Hello, The most likely triggers for acute urticaria/ hives are allergies to pets, horses, latex and foods, such as shellfish and nuts, bee or wasp stings, allergies to medicines, viral infections, such as glandular fever and herpes, dental and sinus infections, fungal infections, blood transfusions and vaccines. In your case, it may be due to the rabbit that you have recently got that may be causing the hives.
1331797 tn?1276142331 Those copax shots don't feel like bee stings -that is much too gentle. To me they felt like wasp or hornet stings for the first few months. They do get better after some time, so be patient. Bee therapy is definitely not recommended these days.
168348 tn?1379357075 I agree that allergies are real. I also carry an epi pen, but it's for bee stings. I just think that allergies are over diagnosed. Either that or products have changed and we don't have the tolerances to it. I think many are diagnosed with allergies when perhaps it's more of an intolerance. One of the points I found interesting in the article as well, was that allergies can change. I read somewhere else that our bodies change every 7 years or something?
Avatar f tn Hi, Wasps can be nasty. You can have you Dr take a look. I think that usually if it's in the same area that you were stung in (on the same limb) it's called a local reaction and can get quite big. Eyes, mouth are exceptions I think. Of course, do ask your Dr or make an appt as we are not medical professionals -- just a mom with mega experience with my daughters' allergies which include bee sting. It is probably a delayed reaction since it's take overnight to develop.

Avatar m tn The causes are infections, medications, bee/wasp stings, food allergies, environmental allergies, stress, cold temperatures etc. Sometimes the causes are idiopathic. The symptoms of STDs include warts, ulcers, yellow or white vaginal/penile discharge, burning with urination, pelvic pain, bleeding between periods, testicular pain and joint pain etc. You do not seem to have any of these symptoms. These symptoms which respond to an antihistamine are probably hives.
Avatar n tn at time the tips of my fingers feel like bee stings when I wash my hands and the first touch water...or if I touch anything..it feels like bee stings.. it will last a day or two then gone.

230262 tn?1316645934 My son who just went into 2nd grade also has to have a EPI with him at all times due to his food allergies and bee allergies. When he is at school he has one there and I carry one in my purse at all times. Any time a child is really allergic to something a EPI pen should always be on hand. One day someone could eat a food that they do fine with then the next they can have a really bad reaction to it. I have no clue why this happens.

Avatar f tn Hi, It is important to know if your wife has any allergies to insects such as wasps. Most people stung by a wasp will have only swelling, itching, and pain at the site of the sting. However, for those allergic to wasps, difficulty in breathing, loss of consciousness, swelling of the throat, face and lips may occur. Remove the stinger by scraping a blunt object over the area. Do not use tweezers, since these may squeeze the venom sac and increase the amount of venom released.
Avatar f tn I have allergies to bee stings and last week I got stung by one. First time I years! I made a paste with baking soda and water and let the dry up on the sting, tool benadryl immediately after it happened. The stinger was still in so we took it out before we did anything. The nurse said it's okay ands long as your reaction isn't super super terrible and send you into anaphylaxis shock or get infected. To take benadryl as needed or til your symptoms go away. And to soak it in cool water.

223237 tn?1302188391 I am freaking out right now b/c her father is severely allergic to bee stings and we have an epi pen for her, just in case. I thought that I would let her sleep in our bedroom in her pack and play until someone can come take care of the situation. Great idea, until closer inspection revealed dead bees in our room as well. Ugh!! I looked all over, and can't find where they are coming from.
