Stinging Insect Allergies

Preventing Anaphylaxis

When it comes to allergic reactions, early intervention can mean the difference between life and death, especially for the more serious allergies. Stinging insect allergies are commonly the fastest reactions to flare up, and require prompt care to prevent drastic consequences. Our goal at Montana Allergy and Asthma Specialists is to help you discover which insects in particular you are allergic to. We can form an action plan that helps you know what to do in the face of a reaction.

Common stinging insect allergies include:

  • Honeybees
  • Wasps
  • Yellow jackets
  • Hornets
  • Fire ants

Allergy Testing Options

We provide a few different methods of allergy testing, depending on the allergy. Intradermal testing and allergy blood testing are common methods for determining the extent of your stinging insect allergy. After we have determined which insects you are allergic to, you may consider getting regular allergy shots to help cope with your symptoms.
