Bee/Wasp Allergy and Desensitisation
For those with bee or wasp allergy, reactions can range from mild, through to life threatening. We provide bee wasp desensitisation which is an effective treatment to prevent reactions to future stings.
Bee or wasp allergy can cause anaphylaxis. There is a fatality approximately once every 2 - 3 years in New Zealand from bee or wasp anaphylaxis.
Desensitisation can help prevent this.
For those who are allergic, the chance of a severe reaction with each bee sting is 75%.
After desensitisation the chance of a reaction is only 5% and these are mild reactions.
