Wasp and Bee Stings to Babies

Are you expecting a baby? Are you planning on having a baby soon? Want to know how to make a baby? No, I'm only kidding. The thing is, if you have, or will have a baby some time soon, you may just like to consider what to do to treat and to prevent wasp and bee stings. I will also cover houseflies.

Wasp stings should be treated by rubbing vinegar onto the affected area of the skin. Alternatively, there are many lotions available that will treat wasp stings.

Bee stings are a little more troublesome as the bees leaves its stinger in the victim's skin. If you try to pinch the sting out of the skin, you may actually pump more venom into the body. The best thing to do is to scrape horizontally across the skin in order to knock the sting out (try using a credit card). Apply the appropriate lotion or use baking soda mixed with water (this should reduce irritation).

For both wasp and bee stings, it may improve things if you apply something cool to the affected area. This should reduce the pain. Wasp and bee stings can be distressing to baby or young child. In most cases the pain will go away in time. In a minority of cases an allergic reaction may result. If your child develops breathing difficulties, any swelling around eyes, lips, tongue or penis, any red blotching, light-headedness or fainting, then they must be seen by a doctor immediately.

Houseflies do not sting of course, but their presence can actually be worse than that of wasps or bees. They can carry some quite nasty germs and they have a habit of depositing some of those germs wherever they land.

When babies start to eat solids, they can be very messy indeed. This mess will lure houseflies and wasps. Apart from troubling your baby, they will be in danger of being stung by the wasp or infected by the fly.

How do you prevent these flying insects from troubling your baby? If you are out, then it may be a good precaution to drape a net over the baby buggy, especially if your baby is eating an iced-cream or a cream bun!

When indoors, it may be best to have a fly killer machine fitted in the rooms your baby spends time in. There are many units to choose from at www.eeeee.co.uk. The machine must be just above door height (never in reach of baby).

We all know that babies cry for all sorts of reasons. It can be distressing, however, when they cry as a result of something that we could have prevented.

Fly killers can be purchased on line here
