Severe allergic reaction???! (Wasp Sting?) *Pic included
« on: January 30, 2014, 02:54:27 PM »
I got bit by something a little over two hours ago and it still hurts.
I'm freaking out because I don't know what it is.
It looks like a small bee, wasp, or some kind of flying ant?
I screamed my head off....it was in my clothes and fell on my leg when I sat down on the toilet, lol
But, it felt as if someone had stuck me with a shot or something.
And it still feels that way off and on about 3 inches around the sting site :(
But, like miniature needles are being shot into my skin.
I've never been stung by a bee or wasp before, and I'm afraid....

What if I'm allergic?

I read that it can take up to 24 hours for a severe allergic reaction to occur....yes, I googled.
And what if I think it's just my anxiety and it's actually a reaction?
I'm terrified  :traurig001:

Here's the best picture I could get with my phone...

I'm not allergic to insect stings but a few of my friends are and they've told me that their allergic reactions happen almost immediately after being stung or bitten. I think you're probably ok.

Just wanted to include that the swelling occurred immediately after and the lymph node the next day. :)

I got stung by a yellow jack. It hurt like a mother for a day or so. Make sure you have some Benadryl on hand but I think if you were going to have a reaction you would have had it.

Looks like it might be a yellow jacket. I was stung this past summer, area all around became super swollen, red and hot. Ended up going on steriods b/c it was so painful - but I survived just fine and so will you!  ;D
