BUZZ OFF From mosquitoes to horse flies and tics...how to stop insect bites and stings ruining your summer



THERE'S nothing worse than a pesky insect bite to take the shine out of the heatwave.

Not only does it hurt, but it ends up itching, stinging and leaving your skin covered in red bumps.

Unfortunately, bugs are part and parcel of the balmy summer months.

Sizzling temperatures are set to bring a swarm of horseflies to Britain with a boom similar to those found in Mediterranean countries.

They aren't the only bugs - mosquitoes, ants and bees will all be common sights in the park.
For any type of bite or sting you can take painkillers like paracetamol and ibuprofen if they are causing you bother, you should also speak to a pharmacist about over-the-counter creams to ease your symptoms and use a cold compress to ease any swelling.

Here's how to deal with different types of insect bites to stop it ruining your summer.

Stings
Been stung by a bee or a wasp?

The first thing you need to do is remove the sting if it's been left in your skin.
You can do this by scraping the stinger out using your finger nail, the edge of your bank card or even a blunt knife.

Try not to pinch the stinger out because it will cause any venom left in it to seep into your skin.

You should then wash the area with soap and water, or use an antibacterial wipe of you're out and about.

If it's causing you pain then ice run it under cold water or ice it to help relieve any irritation or swelling.

Try to avoid scratching it as that can irritate it more.

Try taking an antihistamine to ease the irritation that may occur.

Home remedies like honey and toothpaste may help but the NHS recommends you avoid baking soda or apple cider vinegar.
