Insect bites or stings such as mosquito bites or Hymenoptera stings in general induce immediate and delayed cutaneous reactions. These vary from the common immediate wheal-and-flare reaction and delayed papules to the rare bullous eruptions and Arthus-type reactions. Insect stings of the order Hymenoptera (bees or vespids such as wasps (yellow jackets) and hornets) can also cause allergic reactions. Allergic reactions range from large local reactions through severe systemic reactions to an anaphylactic shock syndrome.
