Heat is the Best Defense Against Bug Bites

Heat allows for the treatment of bug bites. Insect venom, as that of many animals, is thermolabile that is to say, destroyed by heat. Heat also allows for an influx of blood which in turn dilutes the venom present in the body. It is for the same reason that your skin will turn red near a heat source.
