The Hornet

In case of a hornet sting, the victim must see a doctor because the pain will be excruciating, the area where it stung will be swollen, red, and might’ve blisters too. His/her limbs will get cold, ears and lips will go blue too. The hornet’s poison contains histamine and acetylcholine.

The Bee

When stung by a bee, you will see the stinger part still intact, which has to be removed. If the victim is not allergic to a bee sting, he/she might just have a burning sharp pain for a while followed by an itch. But if you’re allergic to bees then seeing a doctor asap is important as there can be a shortage of breath.

The Wasp

The symptoms of a wasp sting are quite similar to that of a bee; red and swollen skin, fire burning pain, and itchiness. What’s different is the wasp can sting multiple times, unlike the bees. Also, if allergic consult a doctor asap because it can cause an anaphylactic shock.

The Mosquito Bite

They are one of the most common bites. When bitten by a mosquito the area will be red, swollen, and very itchy. This is because they inject their saliva into the wound which contains anticoagulants that make the blood thinner and cause itchiness.

The Tick

When a tick attacks a human it stays in the skin for quite a long time growing bigger feeding on the blood. It leaves a red spot when removed. But, if the redness doesn’t go away and starts to spread you need to see a doctor. A tick can infect you with diseases like encephalitis, borreliosis, etc.
