Abstract

Insect bites or stings are among the most common reasons for taking babies to the doctor.1 Although these bites look severe on small bodies and faces, they tend not to be life threatening. A small percentage of babies may, however, develop severe reactions. Heredity is not always a factor in how severe the child’s reaction would be, but allergic parents tend to be more aware of risks.1
