Insect Bites and Papular Urticaria

Insect Bites and Papular Urticaria - What it is

Insect bites are commonly seen in children, with mosquito bites being the most common.
Mosquitoes can also spread diseases, such as dengue and malaria. Sand fly bites may occur in sandy areas e.g. beach.

Mosquitoes are attracted to bright clothing, heat and human smells, particularly those of young children.

Children with atopic dermatitis tend to attract insects more than other children and tend to have a more severe reaction.

Papular urticaria is caused by over-sensitivity to a variety of insect bites, especially those of mosquitoes, fleas, bed bugs and mites. It can sometimes occur one or two days after the initial bite.
