How to Treat Insect Bites Stings How to Reduce the Itching of an Insect Bite
Hello, my name is Dr. Susan Jewell. Now in this clip I'm going to demonstrate to you how you can find a way to reduce the itching when you're bitten by an insect like a mosquito. So what I have here is you can take an aspirin tablet. Don't do this if you're allergic to aspirin though, okay so make sure you're not allergic to aspirin. But you take an aspirin tablet and then you pulverize it into a powder form. So here I have a pulverized tablet of aspirin and I put it into this bowl here like that. Then what I do is I'm going to make.
A little paste. So you just want to add a little bit of water just so it dissolves the aspirin, you know the powder to make a very paste like substance texture. Add a bit more. Keep doing that until it becomes like a paste like that. So once you've got a paste off the pulverized aspirin, what you do for example if I say that this was the area on my hand, on my arm where it's bitten from the mosquito and it is very itchy and inflamed, what I.
Can do is the first thing I need to do is to make sure that the area is cleansed with soapy water. So you got to clean the area very well all over the area that is bitten with soapy water. Pat it all dry and then to reduce the itching what you could do is you could use your fingers. But make sure your hands are sterilized, wash it was soapy water. Then you can just add this paste all onto the bite itself with this pulverized aspirin paste. Just put it over the area that is bitten and that will help to give you some.
How to Treat Insect Bites Stings How to Neutralize Toxins from an Insect Bite
Hello, my name is Dr. Susan Jewell. I this clip I am going to talk to you about one way to neutralize some of the toxins or poisons that you get from certain bites like spider bites that will help to neutralize the poisons right away. Now one way to do that is for example if you got bitten by spider or an insect that has very potent toxins in them then you are going to want to treat it straight away. And one way is to use if you don't have.
Anything at hand I am sure everyone has some disinfectant in the house or around or if you carry it in your first aid kit if you go camping you should have that in there. You can dissolve this disinfectant in some water here. And so what I have got I will do that. Dissolve a little bit of this disinfectant in the water and then you can use this solution to actually apply to clean the wound itself. So say example this is a spider bite and it's really like really spreading and it's getting infected. So the first thing I need to do.
Is to use this water with a mixture of disinfectant and whip it over and that way at least then you are neutralizing the toxins with a disinfectant and with the water as well and you are also washing away all the germs so that will prevent any kind of infection. Then what you do is you can pat it dry and to just add extra protection so you don't get infected is to rub on this betadine as well which is a solution. It's an antiseptic that you can buy very readily.
In the pharmacy drug store and it just kills a lot more germs. Or if you don't want to use that cause that kind of stains your skin and your clothes you can get some antibiotic cream here. Just add that on top of the bite itself to help reduce the risk of getting it infected because you don't want to have that. It makes it more painful and will give you more complications later on. So this is a way that you could also address certain bites from insects or spiders that have very potent toxins.
DermTV How to Treat Insect Bites DermTV Epi 209
Music Hello, I'm Dr. Neal Schultz pause and welcome to DermTV. A few weeks ago I discussed how to apply insect repellent so you could get the maximum protection against insect bites but the reality is, whether you're using insect repellent or not some people are going to get insect bites. So what's the best way to treat them Well the only reason we really need to treat insect bites is because they itch and when we itch we scratch and that's the problem. Scratching causes three different issues. The first.
Problem with scratching is that while it sure feels good and helps to stop the uncomfortable itching it actually causes more itching. You get a rebound flare of the itching, so you're sort of getting into an itch scratch cycle. The more you itch the more you scratch, the more you scratch the more you itch. Secondly, scratching insect bites can actually cause dark staining of the skin, just the way picking pimples can cause a dark staining and those dark stains are very difficult to treat. And third and perhaps most important, scratching can cause infections in your skin and.
Obviously that's something we'd like to avoid. So the best way to treat insect bites is first of all, with an oral, nonsedating, antihistamine. You can get Allegra by prescription or Claritin over the counter without a prescription. Second, we want to use mentholated lotions or creams to help stop the itching. When menthol touches our skin it causes a cooling sensation and that cooling sensation erases the itching and it feels much better. If you're at home you can take an icecube and touch it with an icecube. Ice will stop the itching without causing any increase in.
