Insects Be Gone
Children enjoy spending time outdoors, especially during the summer months. At the same time, they’re also more likely to be more frequently exposed to insects. In this episode, we discuss the differences between bee, mosquito and spider bites in how they cause irritation, their common immediate symptoms, and their treatment. We’ll also be talking about how to distinguish an insect bite from severe allergic reactions.
This episode written by Dr. Lena van der List, Dr. Dean Blumberg and Neha Valluri.
