Is It Dangerous If The Hands Suddenly Swell?
Hello, I want to ask, then I don’t know what my hands don’t bite, just like an insect, but after itching, it starts with a normal bump, but it’s swollen, why is that?
Hello Rizka, thank you for asking.
Some insects have substances that are toxic to their salivary glands. That is what causes certain types of insect bites can occur allergic reactions. Of course, toxic substances in insects are not always deadly. Most insect toxins only cause pain, swelling, and redness.
Allergic reactions to insect bites, in some people can be swollen, red, itchy or painful, and feel hot on the touch. The extent of the swelling depends on the reaction of one's body. In someone who is hypersensitive, swelling can expand to cause numbness. But generally the condition is not dangerous and can heal itself gradually. You can try consuming anti-histamine which is sold freely, and it should be labeled green. Consumption according to dosage and do not overdo it. Anti-histamine can cause drowsiness, so don't drink two or more types of anti-histamine together. Avoid driving a vehicle after taking anti-histamine.
In rare cases, insect bites can cause fatal anaphylactic reactions. The reaction was rapid. Symptoms include overall redness, can be accompanied by widespread biduran, shortness of breath, swelling in the face, blood pressure dropped dramatically, cold at the tips of the toes and hands. In these conditions, a person must be rushed to the hospital to get emergency help.
