How can the body respond.
Reacting to insect bites, you should consider two possible situations.
This famous doctor-pediatrician wrote in his Instagram.
1. Reaction – response to the effects of venom of a particular insect.
2. The person is allergic, i.e., hypersensitivity to one component of the venom of a particular insect. In the second case, in addition, that is to say, a standard response, there are different degrees of severity of allergic local and General symptoms, sometimes extremely dangerous, up to anaphylactic shock.
In the absence of allergies – the situation is quite controllable, and not particularly dangerous. Immediately after the bite it is advisable to bite the place to put something cold in the future – anti-allergic ointment, inside – calcium gluconate, anti-allergic (antihistamines). Note that antiallergic ointments are based on vegetable preparations (for example, “fedex”), antihistamines, the most typical representative – “fenistil gel”, and on the basis of kortikosteroidnyh hormones hydrocortisone, prednisolone ointment, more modern and efficient: “advantan”, “elokom”.
Camping, don’t forget about security
What to use depends on the severity of local reactions. If severe swelling, itching – most likely hormonal ointments, if, about the mosquito bites – so fenistil gel is more than enough. I understand that in a civilized country it is not you have to decide what to put and what to give, and the doctor, but understand also how “easy” to find a doctor somewhere in the country a farm or in a tent camp on the beach – and the only reason I pronounce the name of the drug.
