Less common: All medications have side effects. Fexofenadine (allegra) is a newer or second generation anti-histamine. It does not cause usual side effects associated with older or first generation antihistamines such as drowsiness, dry mouth, urinary retention or palpitations. Some sensitive persons complains of mild drowsiness. Other listed side effects include headache, heart burn, muscle pain, somnolence.

No specific age: Allergy testing can be done at any age. Some children get allergic conditions such as food allergies, asthma and atopic dermatitis at very young age such as 3 - 4 months. In such cases identifying the culprit allergen becomes important. Allergy testing can be done by skin scratch testing or through blood testing but remember skin testing is more sensitive than blood testing.

Don't panic!: Then simply flick the stinger/venom sack out of your skin, and apply ice and topical steroid cream. The swelling should go down in a few days. If the swelling is severe, you may want to see your doctor, as steroid pills may help.
