Local reaction: When an insect bites you it leaves behind some of it's saliva or a toxin. Your body reacts at the site to respond to the injury by using chemicals that cause the redness and itching. Different types of bites have different appearances. Try mild soap/water and some 1% hydrocortisone. Have your MD check it this week if not improving in a few days. http://insectbitespictures.com/

Carpal tunnel: Your symptoms could indicate carpal tunnel. If you do alot of typing, writing or anything that entails alot of wrist/ elbow movement then it is a possibility. You can try to use wrist brace and see if that helps. These days xbox, ps3, txt msging on small phone screens can all cause it..
