Summer stings and year-round bites

What should you do after getting bitten?

After an insect bite, the area around the bite turns red, and becomes swollen and itchy.

What should we do?


Tell a grown-up.


Cover it with some cotton wool soaked in water.


DO NOT apply any cream that you're not sure about.

If you get stung by a bee, remove the stinger it leaves behind as a souvenir, without using tweezers (to avoid spreading the venom).pic2_abellasenseagullo

Ticks must be removed whole.
