Patient : My son Jake suffers from an acute reaction to nettle stings.The area around the stings swells badly with a severe rashthat weeps and leaves him with sores that alst for up to 2 weeks. he has been to the hospital about this and was prescibed anti histamines. I am concerned that this may indicate he is allergic to bee or wasp stings, is there a link and should I get an allergy test done.
