In some cases, people must carry what is called an “EpiPen,” which is basically a needle that can be used immediately in the event of a sting.

This is because symptoms of allergy sufferers can sometimes be quick and deadly. They simply don’t have the time to get to a doctor. For those who have never been stung, and don’t know if they’re allergic, the possibility of being stung can be nearly as stressful, and even those who have been stung before can develop an allergic reaction.
