Insect bites are most often caused by some common biting and bloodsucking insects in the United States. They include bedbugs, deerflies, fleas, lice, kissing bugs, mosquitoes, horseflies, sand flies, and water bugs. Irritation to these bites may occur because of the components of their saliva.
Most bites result in nothing more than a small, red, itchy bump. A large sore or ulcer with swelling and pain may develop. The most severe reactions occur when a person has an allergy to the bite or an infection develops.
Topically, tea tree oil can help with the irritation. Oral antihistamines also help with itching. If you are allergic to
seek medical attention immediately or use an emergency allergy kit containing a preloaded syringe of epinephrine ( EpiPen or EpiPen Jr ).
