The stinging spot of a hornet turns red and swells. Bubbles can arise. The pain is worse than a wasp sting. The poison of the hornet is even more intense. The poison contains histamine and acetylcholine. When limbs feel cold, lips and ears turn blue, or breathing problems appear, consult a doctor.

You must remove the sting that may still be in the attacked area. The skin usually turns red and swollen. It burns, a sharp pain and a severe itching appear a little later. If you are not allergic, there's no danger. But if you are allergic, you might get difficulty breathing.
