What are some of the signs of an allergic reaction to a bite or sting?
Bites & Stings are a benign reaction to the venom or protein of a wasp, bee, fly, flea, tick or other insect, after they have bitten you. An insect bite or sting will often cause small (but usually harmless) reactions in and around the area of the skin in the form of minor swelling, pain, redness or itching. In most cases insect bites & stings will heal on their own, however as many may prove aggravating and unsightly, it is often useful to apply suitable treatment.
