Insect bites and stings are a particular annoyance during the summer months, however, for some the thought of being bitten or stung may cause considerable anxiety. An allergic reaction to a bite or sting can cause symptoms ranging from rashes, hives, swelling or stomach pain, to shortness of breath, fainting or full anaphylaxis.

At Midland Health we can offer a blood test which involves taking a blood sample and testing for the presence of antibodies. This may be more suitable if a severe allergy is suspected.

There is no specific treatment for insect bite/sting allergy, however, certain reactions may be treatable with anti-histamine tablets/ creams or if severe, you may be required to carry an epinephrine pen in case of anaphylaxis. Your Midland Health GP can administer all testing and talk you through your options to put your mind at ease.
