How Does a Mosquito Bite with No Teeth?

How Does a Mosquito Bite with No Teeth?

Mosquito biteAll the discussion about mosquitoes this year revolves around the Zika virus, which has the potential to cause birth defects in newborns with infected mothers. Even the Olympic Games in Rio are threatened. But even if you’re not in an area of the U.S. not threatened by Zika, these summertime playmates are no fun and you’re likely to get some bites. Natural Findings DermaClear Skin Repair Salve is quite effective in the treatment of insect bites and stings,

But how does a mosquito “bite” exactly? According to the Mayo Clinic, mosquito bites are the itchy bumps that appear after mosquitoes use their mouthparts to puncture the skin and feed on our blood. The bump usually clears up on its own in a few days. Occasionally, a mosquito bite causes a large area of swelling, soreness and redness. This type of reaction is most common in children.

Natural Findings DermaClear Skin Repair Salve is also for people that suffer from shingles, psoriasis, eczema, itchy allergic rash, jock itch, first-degree burns and scalds. The main active ingredient is bentonite clay, which has a long genesis as a healing medium. It also contains a potent mixture of time-tested homeopathic remedies.

Mosquito bite signs include a puffy, white and reddish bump that appears a few minutes after the bite; a hard, itchy, reddish-brown bump or multiple bumps, appearing a day or so after the bite or bites; small blisters instead of hard bumps; and dark spots that look like bruises. More severe reactions for those with immune system disorders can include a large area of swelling and redness, low-grade fever, hives and swollen lymph nodes. If mosquito bites seem to be associated with more-serious warning signs such as fever, headache, body aches and signs of infection, contact a doctor.

Mosquito bites are made by female mosquitoes; have a mouthpart made to pierce skin and siphon off blood. Males lack this blood-sucking ability because they don't produce eggs and so have no need for protein in blood. As a biting mosquito fills itself with blood, it injects saliva into the skin. Proteins in the saliva trigger a mild immune system reaction that results in the characteristic itching and bump. Mosquitoes select their victims by evaluating scent, exhaled carbon dioxide and the chemicals in a person's sweat. Scratching bites can lead to infection.

So we can see the encounter is more like a kiss than a bite; but no thanks, you’re not my type, miss pointy-nose. Natural Findings DermaClear Skin Repair Salve comes in a thick, concentrated texture; it can be diluted with water to whatever consistency is desired.
