When went to Grandma′s cottage or countryside for an outgoing, many were eaten alive by black flies. Some of the bites have gotten really swollen and turned red, and they are incredibly itchy.
Most people have some skin reaction after an insect bite. For some, bites can result in mild swelling and itch that resolves within a day or two. For others, a persistent itch can occur that can be unbearable.
Itchy bites are bothersome and can really put a damper on being outdoors and enjoying the summer. Thankfully, there are some simple steps you can take to ease the itch and take care of these common bites.
To be able to get to the root of the issue, let′s understand how the itch starts.
When an insect bites the skin, venom or an irritant (specific to the insect) is released at the site. Our immune system recognizes this foreign irritant and releases a substance found in the body called histamine. This triggers an inflammatory reaction that causes blood vessels to enlarge near the bite area, which results in swelling. Histamine and the swelling both irritate nerve endings in the skin, which makes us itch.
