Take Care of Your Bites
If you’ve become a tasty treat for the bugs of summer there are a few things you can do to stop the itch. Ice can help keep the swelling and inflammation to a minimum and an over the counter antihistamine can do the same. If you develop hives or itching all over, facial swelling or trouble breathing, seek medical attention immediately, because you may be having a severe allergic reaction. If you have questions or concerns about a bite, contact your physician for medical assistance.
