FAQs

Insect bite creams typically contain a type of medicine called an antihistamine, which works by blocking a substance called histamine that is produced during an allergic reaction.

 

You can also try hydrocortisone cream, a topical treatment that is classed as a corticosteroid and works to relieve pain and swelling.

 

If your bite is infected, you will need to see a doctor so they can prescribe a suitable antibiotic to treat the infection.

Taking an antihistamine can help to stop the itch-to-scratch cycle and give your skin time to heal.

 

It’s better to take a non-drowsy antihistamine, like Clarityn, when your itching affects your daily life to avoid becoming sleepy, which may interfere with work or school.

 

If your itching disturbs your ability to sleep at night, take a drowsy variety to help you drift off easier, such as Benadryl.

When you get an insect bite or sting it can sometimes become itchy and swollen because your body has a similar reaction to the bite as it would to an allergen.

 

Antihistamines can help to reduce the itching and swelling in some cases, making it easier for you to refrain from scratching and give your skin space to heal.

 

This is why some insect bite creams contain antihistamines as their active ingredient.

 

In most cases, bites and stings will be minor enough that they won’t need treatment and will go away by themselves, but if you’re ever concerned about yours you should speak to your doctor or pharmacist right away.

 

They’ll be able to take a look at the area and recommend treatment if it’s necessary.
