What Could Have Stung Me, And Why?
Most creatures such as spiders and snakes won’t attack or bite a human being unless if feels threatened or endangered. Most spiders or garden snakes will have a certain amount of venom in their sting or bite which is designed to disable their prey and many are not strong enough to cause major harm to human beings, though it is unlikely you could be bitten by something such as this without any knowledge of it. If you are bitten by an unidentified snake or spider and you are concerned see a doctor as soon as possible.
What Are The Most Common Causes Of These Kinds Of Bites?
More common causes of aggravation are caused by insects or bugs that often feed off skin cells or minute amounts of blood from a human body, the most well known of these is the mosquito. The mosquito takes a small amount of blood from humans as nourishment and you can often be unaware that you have actually been a victim until after the event when the skin reacts. Bed bugs and dust mites can also cause aggravation in the night while you are asleep. These bites often produce red blister like symptoms. Neither is extremely dangerous and will heal in time. If you think you might have bed bugs it is worth investing in a pest controller or at the very least a new mattress.
Should I Be Worried?
Though insect bites are relatively harmless most of the time the venom from some creatures can cause problems for vulnerable adults and young children so if you are at all worried it is worth seeking medical advice immediately.
