Summertime fun sometimes comes with a little bite. Despite our best efforts to keep the bugs and the UVA rays away, sometimes summer gets the best of us. Here are some of our favorite home remedies to take the STING out of some of summer’s most common complaints!
Wasp and Bee Stings
Insect bites (Instead of scratching)
Of course, prevention is key. Wear appropriate clothing to protect yourself from the sun during the day and the mosquitos at night. Use bug spray that contains DEET and sunscreen with at least an SPF of 15. STINGS happen! Knowing how to use household items to find relief can help you enjoy the rest of the summer. If you start running a fever, begin to blister or feel like a bite might be infected, please contact our office immediately. Happy summer!
