I was bitten by a wasp about 2 months ago the bite still itches and swells at time what should it do?
Retained stinger?: Wasps and their relatives (bees, yellow jackets, hornets) don't bite; they sting. Regardless, you wouldn't ordinarily have symptoms 2 months later!

In any case, this should be checked out by a medical professional. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If the problem is persistent, then one needs to consider whether part of the stinger was left in the sting site. If there is pus (unlikely for bee sting), then an antibiotic may be required.See doctor if problem persists or gets worse. ...Read more

Should I go to the doctor for a tick bite? Very small Tick removed 2 days ago. Red itchy rash at site of tick bite. Applied cortisone cream.
See DR: Tiny tick= risk for Lyme disease. You have a local reaction to the tick. There is good evidence for using a single dose of antibiotic, typically 200mg Doxycycline (I prefer minocycline) within 48 hrs after discovery of a deer tick to prevent Lyme.
