Picture of a woman scratching a bug bite on her shoulder.For bug bite and sting treatment in Henderson, Nevada, and the surrounding area, choose Jovive Health. Our team has experience caring for bites and stings from numerous types of bugs—including bees, flies, mosquitos, spiders, ticks, wasps, and yellowjackets—and we will prescribe a course of treatment that is tailored to your specific needs.

What Do Bug Bite Treatment and Sting Treatment Typically Involve?

In many cases, bug bites and stings can be effectively treated at home. Some common at-home remedies include:

  • Thoroughly washing the area surrounding the bite
  • Applying a cold compress or an ice pack
  • Using a topical cream or spray
  • Taking an antihistamine or pain medication

If treatments like these do not relieve your symptoms, and you start to experience flu-like symptoms, signs of infection, or you develop a red, bullseye-shaped rash, then you should promptly consult with an experienced medical provider. And be sure to call 911 or get to a nearby hospital if you begin experiencing life- or limb-threatening symptoms like dizziness or difficulty breathing.

Professional bug bite and sting treatment varies from one patient to another depending on the type of bug in question and the severity of the patient’s symptoms. For instance, if someone experiences an allergic reaction to a bite or sting, then a doctor will likely administer epinephrine. Or, if a bite or sting becomes infected, then a physician may prescribe antibiotics.
