Get checked: Sounds like you may have had some kind of insect bite. Spider bites typical do itch and burn. I would be worried if you notice redness to your fingers or streaks going up your hand/forearm which could be signs of infection. Also if you are have any burning or discomfort when you urinate you should see your provider to give a urine sample. You may need to be prescribed antibiotics.
