LIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke This

Most insect stings cause only minor physical discomfort (although even a regular insect sting can be both painful and frightening for your child). But certain insects’ stings may cause allergic reactions in some children, particularly those of:

  • Bees
  • Wasps
  • Hornets
  • Yellow jackets
  • Fire ants
Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
