Insect Bite: When to Seek Immediate Care and Attention


Insect bites can be annoying, but they are harmless after a few days of itching. However, some bug bites need urgent medical treatment as they can become infected. Bug bites that need treatment include bites from a poisonous insect and an insect you are allergic to.

Below are some signs of an infected bug bite or sting. If you notice any of these signs, see a doctor at an urgent care center and have your bug bite examined.

  • You are experiencing chills or fever above 100°F (37.7°C).
  • You have red spots extending from the bite marks.
  • You have sores or bumps on and around the bite marks.
  • The pain in the bite marks gets worse over the few days.
