If you are allergic to bee venom or insect venom, you’re familiar with how dangerous an insect sting allergy can be. Allergic reactions can range from a local reaction, such as mild hives, to a severe allergic reaction, such as an anaphylactic reaction which can cause difficulty breathing. With such a range of allergic reactions possible from things like wasp stings, it is always important that people with insect sting allergies wear medical alert jewelry every day.
People with venom or stinging insect allergies need medical ID jewelry so that, in the event of a sting, the people around them can identify the problem, help provide immediate treatment (ie: give an epinephrine autoinjector such as an Epi-Pen), and know to call 911.
This is especially important considering how fast symptoms may appear, particularly if there are multiple stings, and because it can be hard to immediately identify a sting site, so onlookers may not immediately understand what is causing the emergency. An allergy alert helps everyone act faster.
We all develop small welts, some swelling and redness, and, of course, bug bites itch. Some people, however, are truly allergic to stinging insects due to a venom allergy, and, when stung, their immune systems go into overdrive, causing moderate to severe reactions, including anaphylaxis.
People with stinging insect allergies may have one or all of a variety of insect or venom allergies:
When your allergist diagnoses you as allergic to bee stings, you may be thinking more about the allergic reaction that made you seek out this advice and less about a bee sting allergy bracelet. But bee sting allergies can have severe reactions -- even if all previous reactions were mild -- so wearing that bee sting allergy alert is truly important.
Thankfully, you can choose any medic alert bracelet you like for your insect sting allergy. Just choose the style you like, and we can custom engrave it with your specific allergies, symptoms, and treatment instructions.
If you have a stinging insect allergy, your medical ID bracelet should list the specific insects to which you are allergic or should simply read that you are allergic to stinging insects. If you carry Benadryl or an EpiPen or other epinephrine auto-injector for emergencies, list the medication you need on your medical ID so those around you will know how to help, even before EMTs arrive on the scene.
