How To Treat Insect Bites On Babies



No matter how well you protect your babies from harmful external factors; there are high chances that your kids could be bitten by tiny insects such as mosquitoes, ants, bug or even fleas. Basically, kids are very active – they are not going to stay still for a moment or confine themselves to a place. They may want to go outdoors or hang out here and there in the house, which makes it easy for them get insect bites because insects could be anywhere indoors or outdoors. Typically, the bites will cause itchiness, redness and pain also. They can heal it themselves, but the victims may experience a lot of discomfort. Here in this article we are going to address the question how treat insect bites on babies, specifically mosquito bite, ant bite, bed bug bite, and flea bite.

As mentioned earlier, the treatment for insect bites boils down to removing or calming the discomfort that your babies have to suffer. The symptoms could be different to each individual depending on the number of bites, the body parts that are bitten and how allergic one is. However, fundamentally, we focus on the treatment for swelling, itching and prevention for any further inflammation.

Mosquito bites

This could be the most common bite your babies get. It is harmless but causes a great deal of irritation, especially itchiness. Insect cream or ointment may soothe the bites well, but you can apply natural treatments like oatmeal, ice, honey, aloe vera or vinegar to the bites. They are most likely to be available in house and absolutely safe for your kids. Prevention of mosquito bites should be making sure that your babies are protected in a net while sleeping or having them play in dry, well-lit places where mosquitoes are not often present.

Ant bites

Ant bites are painful. You may not be stung if not accidentally getting on their way. So the chances that your babies get bitten by ants are as not as much as that of mosquitoes. One sting is hurt enough, but in case the kids are stung by many, it must be terrible. Ice is the most effective solution to calm the swelling and pain caused by ant bites. However, antihistamines or aloe-vera cream could be used to ease itchiness. The most important thing you have to do is get your babies out of the places infested with ants to avoid further bites.

Bed bug bites

What a bad luck if your bed has some bugs and your kids have to suffer. The bite looks like a swollen red spot and appears most often in such exposed parts of the body like face, hands, arms and legs. It will cause the babies to feel terribly itchy. Common anti-itchy cream could be good for calm the itchiness and prevent the kids from scratching. Making a paste of baking soda or apply lemon juice to the bites are some alternative to control the discomfort. The key is you’ve got to washing or vacuuming the bedding to eradicate bed bugs completely.

Flea bites

Flea bites resemble mosquito and bed bug bites in the form of red bumps and the symptom of itchiness. However, flea bites often appear in group or straight line at lower parts of body such as foot, ankle, or leg. Flea bite treatment actually centers on soothing the bites and speeding up self- healing. In house items such as ice, apple cider vinegar, baking soda, aloe vera gel could all be used for your babies. The point is stopping the source of fleas, which is most likely from your pet and then clean up the house thoroughly to remove all adult fleas and their offspring.

Insect bites are unavoidable some time to your babies but reducing the chances of being bitten is absolutely possible by creating a clean and healthy living environment that discourages the growth of those insects. Have an anti-itchy cream in your house for emergency case. Or else, natural options such as ice, lemon, baking soda, oatmeal can be sourced to treat the bites.
