As someone who is allergic to stinging insects such as bees and wasps and one who has had a number of allergic reactions I felt it would be important and beneficial to others to share important information about how to use precautions against stinging insects.

Stinging insects are really prevalent and active during the summer months but you don't have to let them spoil youror your family's fun—if you make it a point to take the proper precautions.

In the United States stings from insect bites send more than 500,000 people to hospitals and cause at least 50 deaths according to "The American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology!"

Common stinging insects include honey bees, wasps, hornets, yellow jackets and fire ants and you must use caution if you are outsideparticularly during the summer monthsand use extra caution if you know you are allergic to stinging insects.

Be sure to use caution when:

  • eating and drinking outside

  • around garbage (be sure to cover if you can)

  • avoid wearing sweet smelling perfumes, hair sprays, colognes, lotions, and deodorants

  • Don't walk barefoot outside

  • Be on the lookout for stinging insects inside and outparticularly if you know you are allergic to them

  • Watch out for fire ant mounds and don't disturb them

When a sting occurs it is important that you are aware of an allergic reactionsince they can be "deadly!" 

A normal reaction will include pain, swelling and redness at the sting sitebut an allergic reaction requires immediate medical attentionas I can attest to after going into anaphylaxis on several occasions—and almost losing my life.

If you or your child is allergic to insect stings or other known allergensbe sure to notify teachers, coaches and camp counselors and teach them how to use epinephrine or an epi pen as it is often called.

An epinephrine injector or an epi pen is the most immediate way to treat a severe allergic reaction and it has helped me on numerous occasions. 

Your doctoror an allergist can normally prescribe an epinephrine injector or an epi pen and they can teach you and your family members how to use it properly.

Be sure to discuss the precautions that you have learned in this discussion with your children and loved ones so they can take the right action and protect themselves from stinging insects from this day forward.
