Dr. Gary C. Steven answered:

Can people be allergic to bee stings?

Yes

Stings
Allergic reactions to beestings include hives, wheezing, throat swelling, and drop in blood pressure; these reactions can be life-threatening and need to be taken seriously. Any visible reaction on the skin that is not directly connected to the site of the sting is an allergic reaction. You should carry an Epi-Pen when outdoors, and should consult an allergist regarding desensitization.

what to do when bee stings and i'm allergic?

Your reaction???

Bee_sting
Those with immediate reactions that include light headedness, dizziness,cramps,difficulty swallowing or breathing should carry an auto-injector device with epinephrine for immediate use followed by a trip to the ER. Desensitization therapy thru an allergist can reduce long term risk. If reaction is mild hives & local swelling, you can take benedryl & monitor the situation for changes

Dr. Gerald Lee answered:

How can I tell if I am allergic to bee stings?

An allergy skin test

Bee_sting
An allergy specialist is able to test you to different extracts from bees and other stinging insects to determine what particular insect you may be allergic to. Based on your type of reaction and the test results, they may prescribe allergy shots to prevent future allergic reactions to bee (or other insect) stings.

How can you know if you are allergic to bee stings?

Wait and see

Pollen
3% or less of adults are seriously allergic to bee sting, and even fewer children. typically, the only way to know if you were truly allergic is to experience an adverse reaction after being stung. Allergy skin testing is very accurate, however not recommended as a screening tool, which means it is not recommended to be done to help decide if a person is allergic preemptively.

What do you do when a bee stings you and you are possibly allergic?

Possibly ?

Breathlessness
If your response to a bee sting has been something like a localized rash or hives you can relax & view the process as minor.If you become dizzy, have abdominal cramps, tightening of the chest or throat with difficulty breathing you should see an allergist. You should carry a auto-injector device with epinephrine & consider desensitization therapy.
