Good afternoon, thanks for the question
Insect bite reaction is a reaction of immunity to the skin due to bites and contact with insects including mosquitoes. Complaints in the form of itching, discomfort, pain, redness, tenderness, warmth or swelling in the area of the body bitten at a location that is generally not covered by clothes.
Risk factors for insect bites include:
1. The environment where many insects live.
2. A history of allergy to yourself and family.
3. History of food allergies.
This condition can be exacerbated by the occurrence of complications in the form of secondary infections, for example due to scratching so that it becomes an entrance for germs to multiply. Infection is characterized by the formation of pus, fever, or a wound that heals for a long time.
It is better to consult with a doctor for adequate examination and treatment. To prevent the recurrence of symptoms it is necessary to maintain the cleanliness of the environment in which to live, wearing sleeveless shirts
lengths and trousers to avoid insect bites, and in some cases you may use anti-mosquito lotion if needed. It is also important to properly treat wounds, maintain personal hygiene, and increase body immunity so that infections do not spread.
