What is an insect bite or sting?

An insect bite or sting occurs when an insect penetrates the skin with its mouthparts or delivers venom through a stinger. This can result in localized pain, redness, swelling, and itching at the site of the bite or sting. Most insect bites and stings are mild reactions and resolve on their own or with basic care.
