Dr. Dwayne E. Rollins, Md.
Dr. Rollins is an excellent doctor. He took the time to discuss my allergies/sinus issues, in addition to even showing me a diagram of what was going on with my sinuses. Most doctors don't take the time to explain in detail, but he was really thorough. My sinus related issues are finally subsiding thanks to Dr. Rollins. An intelligent and compassionate doctor who does his work with skill and grace. His office reflects him, well-run and reasonable. I Would highly recommend him! Thank you, Dr. Rollins.... Dr. Rollins is incredibly knowledgeable and answers all questions asked of him in a way that is understandable to patients. I couldn't be more pleased. His staff is pleasant and incredibly helpful. I highly recommend Dr. Rollins.... I had the pleasure to visit Dr. Rollins today for the first time regarding an ongoing congestion issue. He was very thorough, informative, very pleasant and caring. I highly recommend Dr. Rollins to anyone who needs to see an ENT....

INSECT STINGS AND BITES

The “sting” of an insect such as a bee, wasp, hornet, yellow jacket or fire ants, is the injection of venom into the victim. The typical reaction may result in pain at the sting site, reddening, swelling and itching that may last just a few hours. Enlarged local reactions may have painful swelling several inches around the area of the sting lasting for days.

But, if the victim is allergic to venom, the result may be severe life-threatening reactions.

The symptoms of severe allergic reaction include:

  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Weakness
  • Stomach cramps
  • Diarrhea
  • Hives and itching
  • Wheezing and difficulty breathing
  • Anaphylactic reaction (shock)
  • sudden drop in blood pressure
  • loss of consciousness

Anaphylactic reaction may lead to death and can occur if no immediate medical care is provided.

In a majority of patients, venom immunotherapy will protect against any future life-threatening reactions. In the case of severe or generalized reactions, patients with known allergic sensitivities to insect venom should be evaluated by an allergist and placed on protective desensitization therapy.
