When to Seek Treatment:

Immediate medical attention is recommended if:

  • The reaction is severe or symptoms of an allergic reaction occur.
  • The bite or sting site shows signs of infection, such as increased redness, warmth, or pus.
  • Over-the-counter treatments do not alleviate the symptoms.
