Insect sting allergy. Skin blister on the skin of a 45-year-old woman. The blister is an allergic reaction to an insect sting. The type of reaction depends on the individual bitten. Some people show no reaction at all, while others may suffer a potentially fatal anaphylactic shock. Treatment for the allergic response is with antihistamine drugs. Soothing creams, such as calamine, may reduce any itching.
