Whether it's a mosquito buzzing, a vicious bee or a hidden tick, bugs (and arachnids) are unwelcome visitors at most outdoor activities! Keeping bugs at bay with sprays and repellants helps keep you from being bitten, but in reality, most of us will fall prey to a six or eight-legged creature at some point this summer.
Old wives tales abound with remedies and treatments for bee stings, mosquito bites and tick bites, but relying on a doctor's advice can keep you from becoming sicker from something as common as a bite. Most bites are harmless, but danger lurks if you don't treat them promptly and properly.
Here is a guide to some of the most common bites and what you need to know about them:
Mosquito bites: Mosquitos feed on human blood, and they inject saliva when they bite, causing a minor immune reaction. Bites usually show up white and puffy, but go unnoticed until the itching starts and they turn reddish. A cold pack or bag filled with ice can help with the irritation and swelling. To calm the itching, try hydrocortisone cream or calamine lotion.
When to worry: Mosquitoes are known to carry blood-borne diseases like West Nile virus, encephalitis, malaria and yellow fever. If your bites are accompanied by fever, redness and swelling around the bite areas, headaches, body aches or swollen lymph nodes, it's time to seek medical attention.
Bee Stings: Bee venom causes an immune reaction in the body, typically resulting in swelling and inflammation around the site of the sting. If you're stung by a bee and are not allergic, use a straight edged item like a credit card to remove the stinger by swiping side to side across the surface of the sting. Topical analgesics and creams can help relieve pain and swelling caused by bee stings.
When to worry: If you are allergic to bee venom and have an anaphylactic reaction or suffer multiple stings, seek medical attention immediately.
Tick Bites: Most tick bites go unnoticed, so it's important to be on the lookout. Tick saliva can carry bacteria, so removing a tick as soon as possible is key to preventing more severe infections like Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. To remove a tick, grasp it with tweezers as close to the body as possible, and pull it straight out. If possible, put the tick in a sealed plastic bag. Your doctor may need to see the tick if your bite worsens.
When to worry: Muscle aches, stiff neck, fever, rash, joint pain and light sensitivity are all signs of a more severe infection. Lyme disease is often accompanied by a rash in a bull's eye pattern. A rash on the wrists and ankles can indicate Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. Seek medical attention for any rash associated with a tick bite.

It has become more and more difficult to see you doctor when you get sick. For the past three years I have been bringing my family to Doctors Express whenever we need to see the doctor that day. We never need to make an appointment, they can take care of just about anything, and they always call afterward to make sure we are getting better.

I fell and twisted my ankle while walking the dog one morning. I didn't want to go to the emergency room because of the long waits and I knew that my primary care physician couldn't take x-rays in her office. I went to Doctors Express where they were able take my x-rays, tell me that nothing was broken, and provide me with crutches and a brace. All in under one hour! Why go anywhere else.

The medical staff is the back-bone of the Doctors Express team. We are professionals and health care partners with the physicians. Taking care of sick people is just a part of what I do. It's a high-tech, high touch career with Doctors Express. Just hearing my patients say they appreciate me makes my day.

With no night call, I work hard during the day and spend evenings with my wife. When I'm not working I enjoy traveling, hiking and spending time with family. I'm dedicated to medicine, my patients and my family.

Doctors Express is a great place for X-Ray techs. I love my job and the patients are great. I also train for triathlons. I can work hard during the day and train hard in the evenings. It's the best of both.

I really enjoy the one-on-one interaction with the patients. That's important to me because I have gotten to know many of our patients over the years.

I was at a picnic on a Sunday when my son fell and cut open his knee. He needed immediate care and stitches I knew my family's doctor office was not open. I was dreading the fact that I had to go to the ER on a weekend since I knew I would be waiting for 4-5 hours to be seen. A family member told me about DE and I rushed him to the center. He was quickly treated, stitched and back at the party within an hour. Thank you DE for the fast and efficient care.

I felt horrible when I woke up. I called my doctor but they couldn't fit me in until next week. I really needed some relief and couldn't wait. I called Doctors Express and was told to come right in. With no appointment needed, I was seen, given my medication, and was feeling better in just a short time. I didn't have to miss work and was back to normal in no time!

Doctors Express really understands the need to get my employees back to work as soon as possible. They are quick to see my employees and as a business owner, time missed means money missed. I'm grateful to have Doctors Express in my neighborhood.
