Emergency Medical Response Team

Seek immediate medical attention for any significant reaction to a sting. Severe reactions require a prompt visit to the closest doctor or hospital.


Once you’ve had an allergic reaction to a sting or bite, you’ll meet with an allergist/immunologist who will run tests to confirm the source and determine the severity of your allergy, and prescribe epinephrine if necessary. An allergist is a pediatrician or internist who has had at least two years of extra training in the diagnoses and treatment of allergies.
