The Doctor Is In: Mosquito Bites

Posted September 07, 2015 in Videos


Dr. Vijay discusses mosquito and insect bite prevention and treatment during the high frequency months. Prevention is the best defense when dealing with mosquitos and other insects. He recommends insect spray if you will be outside and avoiding being out during peak mosquito hours. Children have a tendency to scratch causing secondary infections that may require treatment from a physician. OTC antihistimine creams will help with the itching. Dr. Vijay also discusses the importance of carrying an epi pen if you have a known, severe allergy to bites of a particular insect.
