You know there are many insects that cause
pain and discomfort when they bite us as human beings. Hi, I’m Captain Joe Bruni, and what
I’m going to talk about is how to treat a bite from the common mite. Mites can cause
a great deal of discomfort and itching. One of the first things to keep in mind, is not
to scratch the area that’s been bitten. Apply some type of anti itch cream in conjunction
with ice to help reduce swelling, and take away some of the itching process that occurs.
Ice will help to numb the skin as well as some type of anti itch cream to help eliminate
the persistent itch that comes from the bite of the common mite. If scratching does take
place, the skin could be damaged which opens up routes for secondary forms of infection.
If this occurs, a trip to a medical facility for a treatment of antibiotics may be in order.
To avoid this, avoid scratching in the first place by using proper medical techniques of
anti itch cream and ice to reduce swelling and the discomfort from itching. I’m Captain
Joe Bruni. Stay safe, and we’ll see you next time.
