Symptoms, remedies, treatments and care for Insect Stings
Most bites and stings from common insects are harmless and will heal on their own. Some bites and stings, like those from fire ants, wasps, hornets, and bees, may cause intense pain or even an allergic reaction. If you are stung by a scorpion or a poisonous spider then you need to see a doctor right away.
Some insect bites may spread illnesses, including Zika virus and West Nile virus (both transmitted by mosquito), Lyme disease (from a black-legged tick), Rocky Mountain spotted fever (from a dog or wood tick), or Chagas disease(from kissing bugs).
