Homeopathy for Bites and stings
A severe allergic reaction can happen with any bug bite or sting, depending on the person. Venom allergies may cause a dangerous, severe allergic reaction in some people, resulting in swelling, generalized itching, and difficulty breathing.
An insect bite or sting often causes a small, red lump on the skin, which may be painful and itchy.
Symptoms of different insect bites–
Midges, mosquitoes and gnats
Bites from midges, mosquitoes and gnats often cause small papules (lumps) to form on your skin that are usually very itchy. If you’re particularly sensitive to insect bites, you may develop:
- bullae – fluid-filled blisters
- weals – circular, fluid-filled areas surrounding the bite
Mosquito bites in certain areas of tropical countries can cause malaria.
Flea bites can be grouped in lines or clusters. If you’re particularly sensitive to flea bites, they can lead to a condition called popular urticaria, where a number of itchy red lumps form. Bullae may also develop.
A bite from a horsefly can be very painful. As well as the formation of a weal around the bite, you may also experience:
- urticaria – a rash of wheals (also called hives, welts or nettle rash)
- Angioedema – itchy, pale pink or red swellings that often occur around the eyes and lips for short periods of time.

Mites cause very itchy lumps to develop on the skin and can also cause blisters.
Bites can be from a venomous or non-venomous spider. A bite from a non-venomous spider will often cause minor swelling, redness, pain, and itching. These mild reactions are common and may last from a few hours to a few days.
