What happens when you get an insect bite?
When you’re bitten or stung by an insect you will notice a little red lump forms in the area, which can be itchy and irritating. This will usually heal within a few hours to a couple of days, but if you experience a mild allergic reaction to the bite then the healing process can take a little longer. Insect bites and stings are usually harmless, but they can sometimes transmit insect-borne diseases, such as malaria and Lyme disease.
