Have you been bitten or stung by a bee, fly, mosquito, spider, tick, wasp, yellowjacket, or other type of bug? If you’re in Cameron Park, California, you can rely on Jovive Health for sting and bug bite treatment.
When to Seek Professional Bug Bite or Sting Treatment
Bug bites and stings can cause a number of unpleasant symptoms, often including pain, itching, numbness, redness, and swelling. In many cases, symptoms like these can be treated at home by washing the area, using an ice pack, applying a topical cream or spray, and taking an antihistamine or pain medication.
However, in some instances, professional sting or bug bite treatment is necessary. You should reach out to Jovive Health or another medical provider if your bite or sting occurred near your mouth, in a sensitive area, or if you are experiencing:
- Redness or swelling that’s lasted more than 72 hours
- Signs of infection (pus and warmth)
- Flu-like symptoms (fever, fatigue, and body aches)
- A red, bullseye-shaped rash (this can be a sign of Lyme disease, which can be spread through a tick bite)
If you begin experiencing any life- or limb-threatening symptoms—such as difficulty breathing or speaking, dizziness, swelling of the face, eyes, lips, tongue, or throat—you should call 911 or get to a nearby hospital as soon as possible.
