Swelling After Being Bitten By A Mosquito Accompanied By Fever?
Excuse me, I want to ask, I was bitten by a jungle mosquito during the study, I was bitten yesterday but until 2 days later I was still itching with bumps and fever, what do I do? Thank you
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. To deal with insect bites, you can compress cold swollen areas, because cold temperatures help the swelling not to enlarge and reduce itching. In addition, you can also deal with itching by applying calamine lotion or salicyl powder, and make sure you don't scratch it because it can actually trigger further injury.
For complaints of fever, you can take fever-lowering drugs that are sold freely by reading the rules of use listed. And if the fever still persists for up to 3 days after taking the medicine, check with your doctor to be sure whether the fever is indeed associated with mosquito bites such as dengue fever, malaria and chikungunya, or because of other conditions that happen to occur close to time. The handling that you will receive later depends on the results of the inspection.
Going forward, use anti-mosquito lotion, long-sleeved clothes, long pants, and boots if necessary to avoid insect bites, poisonous plants and wounds while in the forest. In addition, always prepare a health toolbox as a form of initial treatment. So, hopefully answering your question.
