Spending time outside during the summer months is something everyone enjoys. However, mosquito bites often go hand in hand with outdoor activities. Bites from the pests can ruin your time outside whether participating in an activity or just enjoying the beautiful weather. Generally, at home treatment for mosquito bites should be enough to relieve the itchiness and other related symptoms. However, when signs of a severe reaction present themselves, come immediately to AFC Urgent Care Powdersville for treatment. No appointment is needed to be seen by one of our board-certified doctors, and we are open seven days a week.
More often than not, most people do not have an allergic reaction to a mosquito bite. Often people discover they are after they are bitten and are often surprise that they are allergic. Children are more likely to have a reaction to a bite than adults. Adults generally become more resistant to mosquito bites and will have milder reactions as they get older.
Everyone knows when a mosquito has bitten them. They will find an itchy red bump where the mosquito has nibbled on their skin. However, it is commonly assumed that the bite causes the bump. That assumption is not exactly correct. The red bump develops as a result of your immune system reacting to the sticky saliva left behind by the mosquito. This pest may not actually bite you, but your skin will react to it if it leaves its saliva behind.
If you are unsure you are allergic to mosquito bites, come to AFC Urgent Care Powdersville today! We can diagnose and treat mosquito bites.
