With the warm bank holiday weekend round the corner and spending time outside, we're more likely to end up with insect bites or stings.

NHS Choices has helpful advice about how to avoid insect bites, and what to do if you are bitten or stung. You can also ask your pharmacist about over-the-counter treatments that can help, such as painkillers, creams for itching and antihistamines.

Or you can call NHS 111 for urgent advice if you have symptoms which can’t be managed at home or with the help of your local pharmacy.
