Symptoms of bug bites in babies
There can be many types of bug bites, caused by anything from mosquitoes to bees to spiders. Symptoms from bug bites often include pain, rash, or swelling. Let's explore them further.
Pain at the bite site
Not all bug bites hurt; however, some might cause a bit of pain. When an insect bites into your baby's skin, it injects saliva in the area. This saliva can cause irritation and pain, as the body recognizes it as a foreign substance.
Bug bite: rash and redness
The saliva released by the bug in the bite area also causes your baby's immune system to respond. This response is what causes the bite area to develop a rash and become red.
