Insect bites

Puncture injuries inflicted by bloodsucking insects such as mosquito’s, gnats, lice, and fleas. The majority of bites cause only temporary itching or pain, but certain people have extreme skin reactions. In the tropics and subtropics, insect bites can be potentially more severe due to particular biting species, as they are capable of passing disease.

All insect bites cause a skin reaction to substances in the bug’s saliva or faeces, which can be deposited at or near the site of the bite. Reactions differ from painful swelling to red pimples, or an extremely itch rash. Certain insects , such as wasps and bees, have stings that can cause fatal allergic reactions.
