Insect Bite Treatment

Insect bites and stings can be painful and cause immediate reactions. They may become red, hot, swollen and cause itching or bruises. Insect bites are usually from bees, wasps, hornets and fire ants.

BayCare Medical Group Pediatric Extended Care at Carrollwood will remove the stinger if the bite is from a bee, wasp or hornet. The site will be cleaned and ice will be applied.

Antihistamines or creams may be used to prevent itching.
