First Aid Care for Insect Bites

It is inevitable that at some point you or a loved one will get bitten by an insect. For the most part insect bites are not dangerous. Most insect species are not poisonous or dangerous to humans. But, it is always best to use first aid to treat an insect bite just as soon as it occurs. This will help with any pain or discomfort and could stave off any negative effects from the bite.

First Aid Basics

When you are treating an insect bite, you need to know what type of insect bite you. First aid recommendation varies slightly from species to species. However, there are a few basic first aid tips for treating the majority of insect bites.

  1. Move away from the insect that bit you, which could mean going into a house, car, or other safe location.
  2. If you were stung by a bee, wasp, or hornet, remove the stinger immediately by scraping it away. Do not squeeze it or more venom may enter your skin.
  3. Wash the area with soap and water.
  4. If the skin around the bite is swelling or showing redness, use a cool compress.
  5. Use either a hydrocortisone cream, calamine lotion, or antihistamine depending on the type of insect bite.

It is always best to carry a basic first aid kit in your vehicle and keep a well-stocked cabinet in your home. Thus, you will always have the tools to treat an insect bite immediately. We recommend keeping at least the following items in your first aid kit.

  • Antiseptic wipes and soap
  • Bandages of different sizes
  • Antibiotic ointment
  • Antiseptic solution
  • Hydrocortisone cream
  • Acetaminophen and ibuprofen
  • Antihistamine cream
  • EpiPen—if needed
  • Cold packs
  • Sterile gauze pads of different sizes.

When to Call A Doctor

Sometimes an insect bite or sting cannot be treated with only first aid. This is especially important in the case of bee or wasp stings, as some people can have severe allergic reactions. Also, certain spider and scorpion bites can be poisonous and you should seek medical treatment from a professional right away.

Call 911 or search a doctor’s care if you or a loved one experiences any of the following symptoms or signs:

  • Breathing problems
  • Hives or swelling around the throat, eyes, or lips
  • Nausea, vomiting, and other digestive issues
  • Fast heartbeat
  • Fainting or confusion

Conclusion

For the well-prepared family, insect bites are not scary. While they may produce discomfort—such as pain or itching—they are rarely dangerous or lead to a, a severe reaction, or allergic reaction. It is always safest to err on the side of caution and treat any insect bite immediately. Additionally, you should watch for signs of severe reactions and be ready to call in the professionals if they are needed.
