Treating insect bites
Treatment with biological product after the insect bite or sting
Sometimes you don’t even notice an insect bite, but there are also insects whose bite can cause pain, swelling, redness, irritation and itching. It is important to act appropriately after an insect or tick bite. You can often do what is necessary yourself to relieve the pain or itching.
Care Plus® Bio offers an effective product based on organic ingredients that can help you soften a bite or sting. Not only insects, but also jellyfish can sting ugly with painful consequences. Even with a tick bite, it is essential that you are alert and take care of the right treatment.
Prevention is always better than cure, which is why it is important to protect the skin from insect bites or stings. This can be done with Care Plus ® Bio Anti-Insect. Despite protective measures, you can still be bitten or stung. This can cause the skin to itch and / or irritate considerably, resulting in red bumps. The Care Plus ® Bio SOS roller with Cosmos certified ingredients has been specially developed to soften the skin after a bite or sting.
What is itching?
649 / 5000
When itching, the itching sensors are stimulated. These are special cells in the skin that are sensitive to histamine. This is an amino acid-like substance produced by the body itself. If the itch sensor is stimulated, a signal is sent to the brain via an itch nerve and you experience itching. We know itching mainly as a reaction to something from the outside, such as a wool sweater, but there are also plants and animals that can cause a rash and itching after touching. Think of mosquitoes, jellyfish, nettles and the oak processionary caterpillar. A natural reaction is to scratch, but this can actually irritate the skin even more.

Ticks can transmit diseases
1 in 5 ticks in the Benelux is infected with the Borrelia bacteria, the cause of Lyme disease. Without treatment, this disease can lead to serious health problems such as joint pain, cardiac arrhythmias and disorders of the nervous system.
Safely remove a tick
A tick is faster on your body than you think and you often don’t notice this. It is therefore important to check yourself and others, for example your children, after a day in nature. Ticks come from underneath and prefer warm and moist areas, such as knees, groin, armpits and your hairline. A tick is so small that you can easily miss it. During the tick season, March through October, make it a habit to do a tick check at a fixed time. For example, do this after brushing your teeth. Have you discovered a tick? Remove it as soon as possible with special tick tweezers to reduce the risk of contamination.
Bitten by a tick?
Because a tick bites into the skin with barbs, it is not easy to get rid of it. With a special tick remover or drawing pen you can easily and quickly remove the tick in its entirety. Make sure you always have tick tweezers with you so that you can remove the tick right away. The timely removal of the tick is important to limit the risk of infection with a bacteria or virus. Therefore, remove the tick within 8 hours. Never try to remove the tick with your nails, alcohol or fire. Chances are that you will not remove the tick completely or that the tick will spit its stomach contents (possibly containing infectious bacteria) into your skin. This increases the risk of contamination.
