Overcoming Insect Bites That Are Swollen And Itchy Spread Throughout The Body?
Hello, u003cbr / u003eI Pearl, age 25 years u003cbr / u003eEvery night I was exposed to insect stings / bites after the rain u003cbr / u003eBut I don’t know what kind of insect, I experienced itching on the bite / stings (back of the leg) then after a few minutes radiating to the thighs, back, neck to the earlobe and hands
Thank you for the question.
Some types of insects, when biting an area of the body, can indeed cause symptoms of inflammation that spreads almost to the whole body, including in the form of itching, redness, swelling, pain, fever, and so on. This condition usually occurs due to the hypersensitivity of the body to poisons that the insect stings to the body, or also the components of insects that come into contact with the body itself.
Your body temperature is actually still relatively normal (new body temperature is said to be high when more than 37.5 degrees Celsius). However, given the itching and swelling, it seems very annoying, you should still check yourself directly to the doctor or dermatologist huh ... Worried, the insects that bite you are dangerous, so special care should be given after being bitten. Worry too, other than due to insect bites, itching that spreads in your body occurs because of other things, such as skin infections, allergies, atopic dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, xerosis, infections of other organ systems, liver disorders, hormonal disorders, psychological disorders, etc. .
In the meantime, to help ease the itchiness you feel, you can do it first:
Apply calamine lotion on itchy skin Take a clean and diligent shower, use cool water, don't get too hot or too cold Wear loose, soft and cool material Don't stress, worry, or be sad too much Don't carelessly exchange clothes and toiletries with others Do not take any medicine before seeing a doctor. Hope it helps.
