Bites and Stings

image Bites and Stings

Insect bites and stings happen all year round. In the UK, bites can come from midges, gnats, mosquitoes, flies, fleas, mites, ticks, and bedbugs. Saliva in these insects can react with the skin and cause inflammation, pain and itching.

Insect stings come from wasps, bees and hornets and are venom injected into the skin. This will cause a burning sensation and swelling which can be soothed with a cream or spray. Although uncommon, some people are allergic to stings. If you have, or feel you may have, an allergic reaction to stings you should seek medical advice.
