Home remedies for Insect Bites
Every one of us has experience with insect bites since at some point in our life, we have been bitten by a wasp, mosquito, bee, bedbug, etc. The positive side is that most of the time, they aren’t serious, and after a couple of hours or days, they tend to get better. However, there are times when the bites get infected and cause an allergic reaction (anaphylaxis) and in the most severe cases, malaria or Lyme disease.
The stings and bites tend to cause a swollen, red lump on the skin. It can be painful and also itchy when it’s not serious, these symptoms go away in a matter of hours or days. When a mild allergic reaction occurs, a larger area of the skin will become red, and swollen. For these symptoms to go away, it takes around seven days. Furthermore, when a severe allergic reaction develops, symptoms tend to be more serious, the patient may experience dizziness, breathing difficulties, and a swollen mouth or face.
