What To Do When A Mosquito Bites You

  • 5 years ago
Being diligent about protecting yourself from mosquito bites is especially important today.
Mosquitoes carry serious diseases, such as the Zika virus, yellow fever, and dengue viruses.
Using bug repellent, citronella candles, or sitting near a fan can all help keep mosquitoes away.
Typically, mosquito bites don’t require a doctor’s attention but a bite should still be treated.
Excessively scratching a bite could break the skin and make it easier for the skin to get infected, for example.
