Most insect bites should cause few problems if you are healthy. Always clean the wound and use tweezers to extract the sting. Rub Calendula cream into the wound or apply diluted tincture (one part in ten) on a cotton pad. This acts as an antiseptic and speeds up the healing process.
Insect bites have been treated by homeopathy.
Insect bites requires detailed specific prescribing of the "right" homeopathic remedy.
Trial and error or shotgun prescribing does not work, and therefore we don't recommend self-medication. In fact, self-medication will complicate the overall symptom picture.
Below are only some of the remedies we may prescribe, please note how important the individual symptom picture is. Only when all symptoms, aggravation or amelioration are taken into consideration can a specific homeopathic remedy be selected.
A further consideration is given to the potency of the remedy.
