According to Food Allergy Canada, when someone has an allergy to insect stings, their immune system reacts to the venom of stinging insects such as yellow jackets, wasps, hornets, and honeybees.
Insect and spider bites often cause minor swelling, redness, pain, and itching. These mild reactions are common and may last from a few hours to a few days. Home treatment is often all that is needed to relieve the symptoms of a mild reaction to common stinging or biting insects and spiders.
Some people have more severe reactions to bites or stings. Babies and children may be more affected by bites or stings than adults.
