Insect bites and stings can happen at any time of the year.
Bites can come from midges, gnats, mosquitoes, flies, fleas, mites, ticks, and bedbugs. Saliva in these insects can react with the skin and cause inflammation, pain and itching. Insect stings come from wasps, bees and hornets which inject venom into the skin, causing a burning sensation and swelling. The affected area may remain painful and itchy for a few days.
Insect bites and stings can be treated with Galpharm Bites and Stings Relief 1% w/w Cream containing 1.0% hydrocortisone, which reduces inflammation caused by insect stings and bites. Galpharm Bites and Stings Relief 1% w/w Cream rapidly relieves irritation, itching and swelling associated with insect bites and stings. Galpharm Bites and Stings Relief 1% w/w Cream is a cost-effective alternative to branded hydrocortisone creams but with the same active ingredients. This product comes in a 10g pack.
