Healthy Punta Gorda kids love to play outdoors, but Florida parents and grandparents need to be aware of a potential danger: bug bites. The ability to tell a harmful bug bite from a benign one is essential to keeping your active Punta Gorda or North Port child safe.
Flea bites are common in Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, Englewood, North Port and Venice. They appear as a rash on a child’s skin with individual raised spots that might have a puncture in the center. Punta Gorda children will usually complain of itchy skin if they have been bitten by fleas.
Bee and wasp stings, also common in the Sarasota area, can be differentiated by the number of stings. Bees only sting once, lose their stinger and then die, whereas wasps (as well as hornets and yellow jackets) can sting multiple times. Florida homes often harbor wasp nests under the eaves.
The sting of a fire ant will usually cause Sarasota kids to have a red hive that may develop into a itchy, pus-filled lesion. Chiggers, which are tiny arachnids, cause multiple itchy red welts on kids’ skin. Check your local Punta Gorda grocery or drugstore for itch-relief products and watch the welts for signs of infection.
Ticks bites will cause an uncomfortable redness on your Sarasota child’s skin and may even swell. Since ticks can carry harmful diseases, you should contact your Punta Gorda area pediatrician if you child has had a tick bite.
