Itching All Over The Body After Ant Bites?
Last night, my feet were bitten by red ants last night and then I soaked with water mixed with a little salt, but now instead all of my body is itchy starting from the face, eyes, hands, neck, back. I wonder why? What should I do?
Hello Dwiapr, thank you for asking.
Insect bites often contain a type of toxin. Toxins can cause allergic reactions, ranging from mild to severe symptoms. Based on your description, it is also possible that you are currently experiencing an allergic reaction to ant toxins. Allergic reactions in the form of burans throughout the body, redness, accompanied by a burning sensation in the area of bumps, itching thoroughly, is probably a severe allergic reaction. If not treated quickly, there is a risk of difficulty breathing due to the swollen airway and shock due to blood pressure dropping dramatically. If this happens, it can be fatal. You should immediately go to the hospital, in order to get anti-histamine drugs and corticosteroids. Avoid taking drugs carelessly so as not to worsen allergic reactions.
Hopefully this explanation can help. Regards.
