Herbs For Insect Bites
Although not usually serious, insect bites and stings can be itchy and painful.
In some cases may need medical attention. Spider bites, for instance, should be watched carefully; severe swelling, pain, or fever can require an emergency medical visit.
You should also see a doctor if you've been bitten by a tick (particularly if a circular red rash develops.)
