Families spend a lot of time outdoors in the summer. And that’s when bees are most active. Bees are hugely important for human beings and the natural world, but bee stings are painful and can be very dangerous for people with allergies. So prevention is always better than cure! We’ve put together some useful tips on how to avoid bee stings and what to do if you do get stung.
The suggested treatments are listed in order of effectiveness. But be careful: you must ask your doctor if you’re unsure or if there’s an allergic reaction!
Bee venom contains a particularly powerful toxic protein. This means that besides being very painful, a bee sting can be potentially life-threatening for people with an allergy.
So if there are any allergic reactions such as serious swelling, dizziness or shortness of breath, it’s advisable to call a hospital or doctor immediately!
People who know they’re allergic to bee stings should have their emergency medicine with them at all times during the bee season.
