Bed Bugs even though not visible to the naked eye are a very deadly fact of life. Many people don’t change their sheets and pillow cases regularly, allowing bed bugs to gather and feast. Bed bugs usually feed on dead skin, but there are many instances when a person accidently sits or rolls on them and they bite back in self defense.
Despite their microscopic size the bed bug bite can be very painful and unlike mosquitoes they don’t bite just one, but they bite repeatedly where ever possible.
Effective Treatments For Bed Bug Bites
Steroidal Cortisone Cream
When experiencing beg bug bite the first instinct is to apply water, but that won’t reduce the venom injected but rather help it spread faster. The instant remedy is to apply steroidal cortisone cream or just cortisone cream.
The cortisone cream disinfects the bite instantly and stops the inflammation from spreading and the cool feel eases the itch. Unlike water cortisone cream also prevents the toxins from spreading and helps the skin to repair itself quickly.
Stopping the toxin from spreading and the inflammation is only the first step, because as long as the rash is going to be there it is going to itch.
Regular application of calamine lotion reduced the inflammation and the rash and helps the skin to repair itself rapidly. Many people avoid the use of calamine lotion due to its smell, but the calamine lotion has proved its worth and effectiveness time and again.
Topical Anaesthetics To Relieve Pain
The bed bug bite is one of the most painful bite anyone can experience. With constant itching and swelling the pain becomes sharper with time which is why it is advised to apply topical anaesthetic cream that includes paramoxine to desensitize the affected area. With the lack of sensation in the wound of the bed bug bite gets sufficient time to heal and the numbness prevents the pain and itching sensation and the calamine lotion gets enough time to heal the affected area.
Home Made Remedies
Many times the bite occurs at such a time that no pharmacy is open and it becomes too severe rapidly that there is no choice but to go for home made remedy.A paste of baking soda with water if applied on the affected area almost immediately neutralizes the bed bug toxin and prevent it from spreading. With the instant stinging sensation of the paste the baking soda paste also reduces the swelling and itching, containing the bed bug bite until a doctor of a pharmacist is available.
Oral Pain Relievers Are A Must
No matter how much disinfect, desensitise and sanitizes the wound, the area of the bed bug bite increases with the spread of toxin and the pain can become excruciating and cause a lot of uneasiness which is why it is advised to have CALAMINE LOTION but only with doctors advise. Pain relievers can help ease the pain while the calamine lotion and cortisone cream sanitizes and reduces the severity of the bite and repairs the affected area. We take care of ourselves to the best of our ability, but many times we don’t take care of the place where we are staying or sleeping which allows beg bug to build nests and cause harm to us and to our dear ones.
