Get the Bite Right


Getting a bug bite can be a creepy experience, especially if you don’t know what tiny creature left you with that red, throbbing welt on your skin. Don’t panic. Most bug bites and stings from common insects are harmless and heal quickly.


Symptoms of bug bites provide clues to the cause and severity.


Here are some common bug bite clues:

Spider bites cause minor symptoms like red skin, swelling, and pain at the site or very serious symptoms that need emergency care.

Mosquitoes leave a raised, itchy pink skin bump or in rare cases a severe allergic reaction.

Bedbugs leave a small bite mark on the skin that is red and itchy or in rare cases causes a serious allergic reaction.

Ticks can carry Lyme disease, and their bite leaves a rash that looks like an expanding bull’s-eye.

Beestings cause a red skin bump with white around it.

Flea bites leave an itchy welt on the skin, often on the ankles and legs.
