When to Go to Urgent Care for an Insect Bite

While many insect bites can be remedied at home with a cold compress or over-the-counter itch cream, promptly visiting a trusted medical provider like Lifeline Urgent Care for insect bite treatment is important if: 

  • The bite is especially red, swollen, warm, or painful

  • You have a fever

  • There is drainage from the bite

  • Blisters, a rash, or sores develop 

  • There are red streaks extending from the bite  

Our board-certified physicians can properly clean and bandage bites, ease bothersome symptoms, and treat infected bites, if necessary.

When to Call 911

An insect bite or sting can sometimes cause a life-threatening allergic reaction known as anaphylaxis. Call 911 immediately if any of the following occur:

  • Trouble breathing

  • Wheezing

  • Lightheadedness

  • Sudden confusion

  • Loss of consciousness
