Rabies is a contagious and serious disease that is caused by a virus passed through the saliva of dogs and other wild animals to humans. Although most reactions to insect stings from a bee, wasp, hornet, or fire ant are mild, causing little more than redness, itching, stinging or minor swelling, in some rare cases these bites and stings can result in severe reactions. During this class we discussed the best ways to prevent getting bitten by either an animal or insect, and the treatment for both rabies and insect bites.
