I was eaten alive by bugs two nights ago (in Nashville). Very itchy. Now, there's swelling around my eyes. What to do?
Benadryl=sleeping pi: BEWARE! Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is a sleeping pill responsible for many accidents because people (AND DACTORS!) fail to appreciate that. There are non-sedating antihistamines such as Claratin or Allegra ( the generics are cheaper and work the same). Cortisone creams can also be used and will be more effective. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Toddler bug bite on cheek next day rash stomach down thighs, pedi said dermatitis and now scabies cuz now to wrist, p.a says no, no itch no fever ?
Rashes: Rashes are difficult to diagnose when a patient is not in front of me but I can say that scabies causes intense itch in most patients. I'm not sure an insect bite on cheek is associated with the rash, perhaps a coincidence. If there are changes in detergents, cleansers, or introduction of a new food, then that has to be taken into consideration. Any travel (sand fleas, bed bugs)? ...Read more

I have a bug bite that swelled up like mosquito bites and now its flat, red and sore. Should i be worried?
May be infected: Since it is red and tender, it may be infected. Any bite can get secondarily infected. I recommend warm water compresses followed by topical antibiotic ointment eg. Polysporin (bacitracin and polymyxin) ointment two times per day. If it does not improve and the red area expands, please see your physician for further evaluation. ...Read more
