Bee stings are a common outdoor nuisance. In most cases, bee stings are just annoying, and home treatment is all that's necessary to ease the pain of bee stings. But if you are allergic to bee stings or you get stung numerous times, you may have a more serious reaction that requires emergency treatment. If your child has a known allergic reaction to bee/wasp stings, it is important to complete a Bee/Wasp Sting Action Plan. Having an updated plan completed by your health care provider, is important. If your child requires and antihistamine and/or Epi-Pen, you will need to provide any medications needed to care for your child in the event of a stinging incident. Please visit with the health room staff in your child's building for additional information.
