Symptoms of a wasp sting

  1. Wasp stings are common, especially during the warmer months. Wasp stings can be uncomfortable, but fortunately most people recover quickly and without complications.

  1. Wasps, but also bees and hornets, are equipped with a stinger as a means of defending themselves. A wasp's sting contains poison that is transferred to humans during a sting. While a bee can sting only once because its stinger gets stuck in the skin of its victim, a wasp can sting more than once during an attack. Wasps stings remain intact.

  1. The wasp venom coming from the sting can cause significant pain and irritation.

  2. The wasp venom coming out of the sting can cause significant pain and irritation.

  1. The majority of people without allergies will experience only mild symptoms during and after a wasp sting. The first sensations may include a sharp pain or a burning sensation at the puncture site. Redness, swelling and itching can also occur.

Normal responses

  1. You will probably develop a raised border around the stitch site. A small white mark may show up in the center of the rim where the stinger perforated your skin. Usually, the pain and swelling will go away within hours of being stung. Unless you have an allergy, most bee and wasp stings can be treated at home.

Serious reactions

  1. People with severe reactions may be allergic to wasp stings, but do not experience life-threatening symptoms such as anaphylactic shock. Severe reactions to wasp stings include extreme redness and swelling, which increases two or three days after the sting. Nausea and vomiting can also occur.

  1. These reactions usually disappear over the course of a week. Let your doctor know if you experience a severe reaction after a wasp sting. They may then advise you to take an antihistamine (such as Benadryl) to ease your discomfort.

  1. After a severe reaction to a wasp sting, this does not necessarily mean that you will react the same way to future stings. You could have a strong reaction and never experience the same symptoms afterwards. On the other hand, a serious reaction can also be how your body routinely reacts to wasp stings.

Anaphylaxis after a wasp sting

  1. The most serious allergic reactions to wasp stings are called anaphylaxis. Anaphylaxis occurs when your body goes into shock in response to the wasp venom. Most people who go into shock after a wasp sting do so very quickly. It is important to seek immediate help to treat anaphylaxis.

  1. Symptoms of a severe allergic reaction to wasp stings are:

  1. You won't experience all of these symptoms after a wasp sting, but you will probably experience at least some of them after another sting. People who have experienced anaphylactic shock after one sting are 30-60% more likely to experience the same reaction in the future.

  2. You won't experience all of these symptoms after a wasp sting, but you will probably experience at least some of them after the next sting. People who have experienced anaphylactic shock after one sting are 30-60% more likely to experience the same reaction in the future.

  1. If you have an anaphylactic history, bring a kit in case you get a wasp sting. These include epinephrine injections (EpiPen) that you can give yourself after a wasp sting.
