Published by LWW Each subsequent sting can cause an increased likelihood of sensitization. It is also helpful to determine if the patient was stung once or multiple times and by one or more insects. It can also aid in identification of the insect involved. For example, honeybees usually sting only when they are stepped on.
Yellow jackets, however, attack people when their food source is threatened. This usually happens in the late fall, when they can be found scavenging for food in garbage containers. False-positive skin test results may be due to venom cross reactivity. In severe local reactions, corticosteroids usually 0. Antihistamines can help alleviate the pruritus that is often associated with a sting. In addition to immunotherapy, any patient who has had a systemic reaction to a sting should have self-injectable epinephrine EpiPen prescribed and be taught how to use it appropriately.
Besides epinephrine, these patients should have antihistamines with them at all times. Patients are also encouraged to wear a medical alert bracelet that identifies them as venom allergic. The patient, primary care physician, and allergist should all be involved in the decision of when to discontinue immunotherapy.
An urticarial episode consists of a period when hives are present daily or nearly daily. It should be noted that a given crop of hives will likely be present only for a short period, but the patient may have multiple crops of hives during the episode. Often, the patient has already identified the responsible agent before seeking medical attention.
Patients may be hypo-, hyper-, or even clinically euthyroid but usually have antithyroid peroxidase autoantibodies. In these patients including the clinically euthyroid , treatment with physiologic doses of thyroid hormone often leads to resolution of the urticaria. Further treatment options for these patients include cyclosporine. These physical urticarias can be diagnosed by using various maneuvers to reproduce them.
The cube is then removed and the arm observed for 10 minutes. A hive that develops at the same location where the ice cube was indicates a positive test result. Autologous serum skin testing is another option.
The only reliable test for sensitivity to food additives is a double-blind placebo-controlled challenge. Because these medications are often sedating, they should be given shortly before or at bedtime. If the hives recur, restart the medications for another period of time.
Angioedema without urticaria usually presents as a painful, nonpruritic swelling of the deep dermis. Occurs in X-linked dominant fashion and therefore affects mainly women However, several case histories have been reported in which angioedema has developed in patients with ACE inhibitor—induced angioedema when treating with an ARB therapy. The greatest danger with angioedema is that it may involve the larynx and can lead to complete obstruction of the airway.
This is low even between attacks in HAE.
If this is not significantly decreased, a functional C1INH level should be obtained. This is reduced in either acquired or hereditary forms. Epinephrine can be lifesaving for severe reactions. The following is an overview of the current treatment options:. Laryngeal angioedema may develop, and therefore, it is always important to safeguard the airway. Some patients may even require intubation or tracheostomy during their attacks.
These reactions are based on the chemical properties of the drug and therefore occur in all patients if a sufficient amount of drug is given. In many cases, the reaction may be lessened by decreasing the dose of the drug. In this case, the biotransformation product rather than the drug itself is the offending agent. The reaction to sulfa-containing drugs mostly sulfamethoxazole in patients who are HIV positive is an example of this reaction.
These reactions are different from other side effects, and the method for abrogating the reaction differs from that of other types of ADRs.

They are seen in susceptible individuals, but the basis for the susceptibility is not known. They can occur at any point during therapy. The reactions may be mild, such as the facial dyskinesis that is seen with phenothiazines, or devastating, such as the aplastic anemia with chloramphenicol. Idiosyncratic reactions almost invariably recur if the drug is reintroduced.

Examples include drug fever and erythema multiforme minor and major Stevens-Johnson syndrome and toxic epidermal necrolysis. It is only when the drug or its biotransformation products reacts covalently with a tissue protein or carbohydrate that acts as a hapten that it is capable of inducing an immune response. Seventy five percent of patients with a history of penicillin reaction have a positive skin test result to penicilloyl-polylysine Pre-Pen.
It is possible to use the native drug as an allergen in the hope that the drug or its metabolite will provide an appropriate allergenic structure; however, the predictive value of these tests is questionable.
If the reaction occurred in the past, a chart review may be necessary. It is often helpful for the physician to make a list of the potential offending drugs and then to rank the drugs by allergenic potential. An anaphylactic reaction is much more significant than a minor skin rash. For some patients, true reactions are seen to multiple drug classes and probably represent an increased ability to react to haptenated proteins. For example, a facial rash in a patient with lupus erythematosus is most likely the result of the disease process and not a drug reaction.
Indeed, in practice, this is performed only when a decision to start the patient on the drug has been made. If the patient tolerates a low dose 0. For example, patients who have a history of a reaction to a local anesthetic which almost never causes a true allergic reaction can receive a provocative challenge with the least reactive group of agents those that do not contain a paraaminobenzoic acid ester group.
If a small 1 mL dose of the local anesthetic does not provoke a reaction, this anesthetic can be used without hesitation.
Pretreatment protocols to prevent or temper a reaction are available for a number of drug classes that cause reactions by anaphylactic or anaphylactoid mechanisms. The procedure does not prevent the appearance of mild skin reactions such as pruritus or urticaria. Once the drug has been stopped, the patient becomes sensitive again in 8 to 48 hours.

If the physician foresees a need to retreat with the same medication in a short period of time, the drug should be continued usually orally to avoid having to undergo another desensitization. The overall prevalence is growing, particularly in developed countries. Reactions that occur hours after eating are much less likely to represent an allergic response.
In children, the common offending foods also include milk, wheat, soy, and egg.
