Insect bite allergy. Blister on the skin of a 17-year-old girl, an allergic reaction to an insect on the calf. The type of reaction to a bite or sting 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.
