Seek immediate help if
- a bite becomes unbearably painful or itchy,
- swelling becomes very severe or spreads rapidly,
- lips, face, or neck become swollen or breathing is affected,
- joints become swollen and painful,
- sting is on the tongue or in the mouth or throat,
- there is faintness or confusion,
- a red streak develops from the sting up or down the leg or arm. This is a sign that the person has previously had a very severe response after being stung by the same insect.
There are many wonderful things about spring and summer and spending time in the outdoors, but there is also the one unavoidable fact: bug bites and insect stings and how to best avoid and relieve them.
Most bug bites puff up, turn red, and itch. They can cause the urge to scratch and blemish our skin for months at a time if not appeased quickly.
Natural and healthy insect repellants are hard to find. The mildest sprays can cause a burn in your eyes and irritation in your and your child's throat and chest, and they can leak in your backpack.
The best way to prevent insect bites is to wear light-colored protective clothing, stay cool (sweat attracts insects), cut down on sugar, salt, and alcohol, and avoid flowery fragrances.
Resist the urge to scratch and use Miranda’s bug bite relief as soon as you get bitten. One application is often enough and it feels as if the sting never happened. A small amount goes a long way, and the ingeniously designed one ounce vacuum tube fits in any pocket and lasts a long time.
Usage tips from Miranda:
- Apply a thin layer at a time.
- Lightly smooth over bite and surrounding area. No need to rub in.
- Safe to re-apply as often as needed as long as needed.
- For people of all ages and pets.
