THE SIGNS OF ANAPHYLAXIS FROM INSECT BITES

The Las Vegas Valley has warm weather through late October – this means we will see biting or stinging insects in Henderson or Centennial Hills in the fall as well as spring and summer.

 

Anaphylaxis from insect stings is a threat that is extra prevalent during this time period that doesn't get enough attention or warning. Data shows that more than half a million people to the hospital each year from insect bites or stings.

 

While most people will have only mild reactions to insect stings (bees, hornets, wasps, yellow jackets, etc.), here are some of the symptoms that may indicate a severe reaction:

 

  • Difficulty breathing and/or swallowing
  • Hives
  • Excessive swelling, especially around the face and throat
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea
  • Rapid pulse
  • Loss of consciousness

 

Anaphylaxis is a severe, potentially life-threatening allergic reaction. It can occur within seconds or minutes of exposure to something you're allergic to, such the venom from a bee sting. Anaphylaxis requires an immediate trip to the emergency department and an injection of epinephrine. If anaphylaxis isn't treated right away, it can lead to unconsciousness or even death.
