In brief: Check the Epi allrgy

I have seen patients who were told they were allergic to epi when in fact it was just an "expected" side effect.
It is almost impossible to be allergic to epi..And certainly if you are truly allergic t wasps..A sting could be life-threateneing...Epi will save your life. See an allergist to straighten this out asap..It is "bee sting season".

Antihistamines such as Benadryl (diphenhydramine) can be helpful.
