1. Don’t scratch an insect bite
The first sign of a bug bite is itchiness. Although you can’t help but feel the need to scratch the maddening itch on your skin, you really shouldn’t!
Scratch a mosquito bite or sting may cause germs and bacteria to spread over your skin and result in an infection, making the matter worse.
Scratching an itch caused by bug bites can also cause your skin to break, swell, or bleed, which is hardly the way to treat a bite.
Try to keep your hands to yourself and only touch the bitten skin when applying a disinfectant or ointment for bug bites.
