Rash: This may have been an insect bite with an allergic response or an area of contact dermatitis from something that touched your skin. Apply cortisone cream, but if redness spreads and burning persists, an infection of the skin(cellulitis) may be present and requires antibiotic treatment(pills and cream). Your physician will advise you.
