A member asked:

My son 15 months old found to have bitten by some kind of insect, and he had swelling over the leg and two small marks, what i have to do to treat it?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Insect bites: Keep the insect bite area clean. Keep him from scratching at the site. You can give him a tepid bath with a little baking soda or aveeno (oatmeal powder) in the bath water. Caladryl clear gel can stop itching, if that's a problem. Call your doctor if redness or swelling is spreading.
