Stinging Insect Allergy


SERVICES WE OFFER:

Venom skin testing

This procedure is offered to patients who have reported a serious, near-fatal reaction to a stinging insect such as  honeybees, yellow jackets, wasps, and hornets. It involves a series of skin prick tests and intradermal tests with small amounts of the insect venom.

Venom Immunotherapy (VIT)

This treatment option is offered to patients who are positive on their venom skin testing and require desensitization to reduce a patient’s risk of a severe systemic reaction on a future sting. A complete densensitization takes 3-5 years.
