Pictures can help to identify insect bites. There are websites, such as WebMD, that have pictures to help people identify common or particularly harmful insect bites. Looking at the pictures and descriptions helps to differentiate between various insects and the bites they inflict.
Tick, spider, lice, mite, flea and ant bites are all common. If an insect bite is infected or causing serious pain, medical attention is required. Some insects carry disease, and some have poisonous bites. Infection is another concern because many insect bites itch, which can lead to open wounds if the area is scratched too much. The situation in which the bite occurred is helpful for identifying which type of insect caused the bite.
