Did You Know?
The most common identifying symptom of an insect bite is itching, pain, and sometimes an allergic reaction. The bite itself causes the itch but you only feel it when the insect is gone because the venom commonly leaves a numbing feeling. The venom can also cause pain and an allergic reaction. Depending on your sensitivity to the insect, the reacting to the bite can vary. The worst case scenario is an allergic reaction called anaphylaxis where the victim of the bite experiences circulatory and respiratory problems, either immediately after the bite or in a delayed amount of time. Anaphylaxis is treated with epinephrine.
