Patient :Can I take piriton for a wasp sting I was stung yesterday afternoon and my arm is still swelling and the redness and pain getting bigger. The chemist suggested I go to AandE I have been putting ice on it for relief and hydrocortisone cream which the chemist gave me. I don't really want to trouble the hospital. I think I had Piriton last time I had a reaction.
