Insect Bite Wounds Become Wet, Itchy And Blackened?
I was bitten by our insects, but it started to ache and itched. I never scratched it and I didn’t treat it.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clarified, when exactly did you experience the insect bite?
After being bitten by an insect, symptoms of inflammation can appear that make the skin feel itchy, reddish, painful, and also swollen. Depending on the type of bug, this condition can be dangerous or not. Frequently, a mild condition can improve on its own as long as you take good care of the cleanliness of the insect's bitten skin and not give it any treatment. Insect bites, after recovering can indeed leave a blackish mark due to hyperpigmentation. However, insect bites alone, should not lead to wounds that continue to wet and intense itching prolonged. If you experience this condition, it could be that your insect bite bite is infected secondary so that it becomes inflamed again.
Our advice, do not just use the ointment carelessly. Check your condition directly to the doctor or dermatologist so that the best treatment is given. Your complaint, in addition to the effects of the insect bite marks that you have experienced before, may also be caused by other factors, for example allergic contact dermatitis, irritant contact dermatitis, other infections, and so on.
In the meantime, you can take the following steps:
Clean the insect bites with clean gauze moistened with intravenous fluids, squeeze slightly to make the liquid come out
Do not handle insect bites with dirty hands
Do not use tight clothing or rough material so as not to cause excessive friction on insect bites
Do not give any treatment to the insect bites
Hope this helps ...
