Insect Bites


Chase (dr.) Webber Naturopath View profile

Flea bites are very irritating to the skin and very itchy – please follow these guidelines. 1. It is important to keep the affected area clean. Wash the bites with some natural antiseptic lotion or soap such as tea tree. Use cold water, avoid the use of warm or hot water as this may tend to stimulate itch. 2. Secondly, apply a cold pack over the bites if necessary to reduce swelling. A cool bath with a tablespoon of oats can also help reduce the itching. 3. Do not scratch the inflamed area as this may lead to open wounds and secondary infections. 4. If the affected area is read and swollen, apply chamomile lotion. Treatment of flea bites using these natural remedies should improve within a few days, However, if the condition worsen, they remained red and swollen with discharges, then a trip to your doctor may be necessary. To prevent further flea bites it is important to get effective pest control chemicals and clear the home area, very few natural substances can clear the environment unfortunately, then it is possible to find mixes of aromatherapy oils that act as repellents – chamomile, german chamomile, yarrow, lavender, neroli are often used. Visit the Natural Medicine Dispensary at Wellness Warehouse and ask them to show you a few products. Best regards Dr Chase Webber ND
