Response to Honey Bee Stings

Abolfazl Asadi Dizaji, H. Moeni, N. Maheri Sis, Valizadeh and Ahad Shaddel    

Abstract: Bee sting represent an uncommon cause of death. Bee stings are a common, painful and rarely injury. Most literature regarding the immediate treatment of bee stings states that the sting should be scraped off, perhaps with a knife blade, credit card, or fingernail and never plucked out by pinching with forceps or one`s fingers. To assay the venom injected by a bee sting, we measured the area of the weal achieved its maximum size approximately 10 min after sting. Ten min after each sting was administered, this observer measured the maximum and minimum diameters of the raised portion of the weal, using a digital caliper. Increased venom dose led to larger weal sizes. Weal area was approximately a log_linear of dose. We showed that the sting weal bioassay we used is well correlated with the quantity of venom received by the subject.
