A 46-year-old member asked:

How many wasp stings are too many for a child?

Dr. Joseph Bouvier
Pediatrics 26 years experience
See below: This is variable and greatly depends on whether the child has an allergy to the wasp venom. If the child shows any symptoms other than a local redness, swelling and pain at the site of the sting, such as facial, lip, eyelid, tongue swelling, respiratory distress, vomiting, diarrhea, etc. - get seen asap for potential severe reaction.
