The stinger-like stings are still an occasional problem, but now they’re almost as common as the stinger itself.
The stinger, once a common cold that was mostly a localised case, is now seen more frequently in the United States.
That’s because the number of cases has increased in recent years, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
In the past year, the number has more than doubled, from about 1,000 to 4,600.

People who have had one stinger in the past 30 days have a 1 in 6 chance of getting a second, according the CDC.
The stinging usually starts as a red, swollen rash that is caused by a bacterium called Coccidioides coccidii.
It spreads to the eyes and mucous membranes and can lead to temporary blindness or a loss of vision.
“Stinger infections can last for months or years,” says Dr David Wurtman, an infectious diseases specialist at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.
“People don’t know when they’ve got one and the number increases.”‘
