Allergies after being bitten by executioners are rare

The puncture result usually looks like a red apple about an inch in size, as announced Tuesday by the allergy center. The small growth is a defense reaction to the mosquito’s saliva. This stuns during the sting and inhibits blood clotting. Histamines are also released, which cause itching and inflammation.

Unlike bee and wasp stings, which can trigger sensitive reactions such as hives, swelling, nausea, and shortness of breath, mosquito bites are harmless.

In the event of a mosquito bite, the Allergy Center recommends ignoring it. To prevent bacteria from getting into the sting, you shouldn’t scratch it. It is best to clap the sting if it is very itchy. Cooling can also help or an anti-itch cream. For larger inflammations, specialists prescribe ointments containing cortisone or an antihistamine.

It is best to avoid the points in the first place. The Allergy Center recommends light, long and loose clothing for this. Mosquito repellents are also useful. However, people with sensitive skin should be wary of contact allergies. You better spray the protective on your clothes.

Mosquito nets keep mosquitoes away from the house and mosquito nets keep them away from the bed. Also, you should not offer mosquitoes any breeding grounds and therefore no containers filled with water.

In terms of allergies, the invasive tiger mosquito, which is spreading more and more, does not differ from native executioners. Unlike local executioners, it also stings during the day. It can spread diseases such as Zika and dengue fever. However, no such cases have been reported in Switzerland so far.

Mosquitoes emerge from standing water in the summer. As soon as it gets dark, they swarm out for blood. Females need it for egg production. They can be controlled by their subtle sensors for carbon dioxide from the air we breathe, fragrances in sweat and by means of infrared.
