How should I treat beetle bites from a stink bug?


Answer by  skateycat (124)

Wash the area with anti-bacterial soap and water. Dry the area and apply 1% cortisone cream. You can also use any over-the-counter anti-itch creams and lotions available at your pharmacy. Keep the area open to air. If the area becomes increasingly red, you will need to visit your physician for antibiotics.

Well if you want to treat these bites then what you should do is apply tea tree oil and over the areas. Then also apply some witch hazel to alleviate the burns.

First apply the bite area with anti-bacterial soap. Then wash the soap off with water. Once cleaned with soap and water, dry bite area and apply 1% cortisone cream to affected area

Wash the bite with anti-bacterial soap if you have it. Look for cortisone or some kind of anti-itch cream to lightly apply to the bite. Don't bandage it, let it breath and expose it to the fresh air. If issues continue seek a doctor, though long lasting symptoms don't occur often.

Stink bugs don't bite but a similar bug called an assain does. Just wash the are with something like peroxide and apply cortisone cream for the itching. Don't badage the area and see your doctor if it becomes red and inflamed.

Stink bugs aren't beetles, and they don't bite. They feed off of plants only and don't have any mechanism for biting with.

Green Shield Bugs most certainly do bite, it hurt a lot and bled. I accidentally put my arm on one when picking something up in the garage. I washed it immediately then put alcohol gel on it although it is still red. The bug was fine, by the way...  add a comment
