Stung by bee as child would cause a lot of swelling but don't remember anything else. Concerned about going on long hike, should I carry EpiPen (epinephrine)?

In brief: Insect bites

Getting stung and having a natural local response swelling redness pain itching is normal.
It is not a for sure that you will then be hyper- sensitiEd.
