In brief: Bug bites

Mild local reactions - the patient will likely have some itching and localized swelling which goes away within a few days.
The patient may find that placing a cold compress over the affected area, taking oral painkillers, such as tylenol (acetaminophen) or Ibuprofen help. A steroid cream or anesthetic cream may also help soothe the discomfort. Some patients may find an antihistamine helps.
