For most people, insect stings are a short-term annoyance. But for some, the venom in a stinging insect can cause an allergic reaction that can range from a mild local reaction to anaphylaxis. In this webinar, learn about how insect allergies are diagnosed and treated and how to be prepared for a potential allergic reaction.
