Summer Insect Bites (#2 of 2)
Also helpful in your summer medical kit is over-the-counter Benadryl tablets or liquid. Benadryl about an hour before bed can lessen the scratching, particularly at night. Insect bites get infected most often from scratching. Be sure to dose correctly if giving Benadryl to a child.
Benadryl can also be used during the day but will often cause drowsiness. And very ocassionally, children will get hyper. So consult with your family doctor and read the Benadryl package insert carefully. It’s often good to test any new medication before leaving home.
