Wasp Stings

I really want to go to USAFA, but when I was little, about 6 years old, I had an allergic reaction to a wasp and it was only a one time thing. Will I get medically disqualified at the medical evaluation? Just recently, about a month ago, I was stung and carefully monitored my self. I had no allergic reaction whatsoever. I even have a mark or minor scar to prove it haha.. since I have a habit of exploring. I was issued a epipen just in case, but I’ve never had to use it for ANY insects stings. Will I be disqualified for something that happen once and no longer affects me?

Oh and my face did not swell up like the photos you would see on google images. The wasp just happen to bite me near my neck or face, I can’t remember, I just remember crying because of the pain, and of course my mother overreacted and took me to the hospital since I was red where the wasp stinged me and the doctor issued me an epipen for

“ just in case You get a major allergic reaction in the future.”

It doesn't seem like you are allergic to wasp and bee stings, and with out a medical diagnosis, I would say No to allergies.

As I recall, the first sting doesn't trigger an allergic reaction, the 2nd one does. Your health is the first thing, so visit an allergist & get tested. Then
