How do you treat an insect bite or sting?
Start by removing the sting if it’s still in the skin, then wash the area with soap and water.
Apply a cold compress or an ice pack to any swelling for at least 10 minutes and, if possible, raise the affected area to reduce swelling.
Avoid scratching the area or bursting any blisters to reduce the risk of infection and apply an insect bite cream to relieve itching.
