It is important to protect the skin against insect bites and stings. Care Plus® has an extensive range of products. Regular application of insect repellent to prevent insect bites requires discipline and is often forgotten, so there´s still a chance to get bitten or stung. This can cause itching and skin rash. Care Plus® has various products for treating the skin after bites and stings.
What is itching?
The stimulation of itching receptors causes itching. These are skin cells that are sensitive to histamine. This is an amino-like substance that is produced by the body. When the itch receptor is stimulated, it sends a signal to the brain that causes you to experience itching.
We generally experience itching as a reaction to something external, such as a mosquito bite or a woolen sweater. There are plants and animals that cause a rash or itching after contact. A natural reaction is to scratch, but this can irritate the skin even more.

It is always better to prevent a bite or sting, not just because it causes itching, but especially because an insect bite may cause disease. A tick bite can cause meningitis or Lyme disease, and a mosquito bite can cause diseases such as malaria, yellow fever, dengue and zika.
You can reduce the risk of a bite or sting by taking the right preventative measures. You can protect yourself against insects by wearing the right clothes, applying insect repellent and sleeping under a mosquito net.
