Outdoor Allergies

Do You Have an Insect Sting Allergy?

Sometimes when you’re stung or bitten by an insect, it is difficult to tell if you’re having a normal reaction or an allergic reaction. Some insect venom can cause a great deal of pain or discomfort even when you are not allergic to it. At AAIR of Charlotte, we can determine if your reaction was truly allergic and if so, we can test for a variety of stinging insect allergies.

The recommended treatments for allergies caused by stinging insects are allergy injections and to carry an Epi pen at all times. It is also recommended that you wear an bracelet or necklace which identifies that you have a stinging insect allergy.

If you have had a reaction to an insect sting in the past or are unsure if what you are experiencing is truly an allergy, call the experts at AAIR of Charlotte today for a consultation.


How Can You Deal With Outdoor Allergies?

As with an insect sting allergy, the best way to deal with outdoor allergies is to know what you’re allergic to. This can be difficult to pinpoint since there are so many possibilities. Try to keep a log of the places and seasons that make your allergies worse. This might help you to target the problem. You can also see a Board Certified Allergist, who can test you for allergies. Once your triggers are identified, your Allergist can recommend an individualized treatment plan. At AAIR of Charlotte, we believe it is our job to treat and even cure your allergies so that you can get back to your life!
