Understanding Insect Bites and Spider Bites -- Treatment
What Are the Treatments?
For insect bites that aren't serious, the goal of treatment is simply to relieve discomfort. In the rare cases of bites that cause a severe reaction, it is essential to get medical help immediately.
The discomfort of many insect bites can be soothed by an ice cube, a cold washcloth, calamine lotion, a paste of baking soda, or an over-the-counter hydrocortisone ointment.
What is allergic rhinitis?
Allergic rhinitis, often called allergies or hay fever, occurs when your immune system overreacts to particles in the air that you breathe-you are allergic to them. Your immune system attacks the particles, causing symptoms such as sneezing and a runny nose. The particles are called allergens, which simply means they can cause an allergic reaction.
