Red raised pussy bump on child after tick bite 7 months ago. Gets larger even after draining well.
Had 3 bug bites 2 months ago. Formed a hard welt on one bite. All 3 continue to really itch. One scabbed. How to get rid of?
But bites: The firm mass at one bite site may be a small blood clot(hematoma) from bleeding under the skin which occurred at the time of the bite. As long as these bite sites are not hot and reddened no secondary infection is likely and you can apply a cortisone type ointment to relieve itching. The hematoma may very slowly resolve. ...Read more
Urticaria from Nickel tooth braces. 2 months later after I removed braces, still get redness on my skin once a day.
Urticaria: It is a possibility that your body has mounted a persistent allergic response to the presence of nickel in your body. The symptoms may also be unrelated. Trial the use of antihistamines daily for one month and then see if the rash has resolved. You may need to see a dermatologist it persists ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Dark patch of skin left on mosquito bite areas >2 months after allergic reaction to mosquito bite was over. Never had this before?
Post inflammatory: Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation is a common and normal response during the healing process. When traumatized skin heals, redness, followed by dark discoloration often occurs. With time, the site will usually resume normal coloration to match the surrounding skin. Topical steroid creams applied initially can help reduce inflammation and prevent excessive discoloration. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hard to say: The bumps appear as a skin reaction to the debris left in the tunnels the scabies leave under your skin.That reaction does not stop at the point of treatment, since it may take a couple of days to show up.It is a little early to worry about treatment failure. Give it another week, and your sites ought to be healing. Re-infection is a possibility if bed linen and clothes have not been cleared. ...Read more
Spider bite on finger at first was itchy& painful at touch now 3 weeks later bullseye effect allergys up shorness of breath viens around bite noticabl?
Something else...: ...Is going on here. Spider bites shouldn't last for 3 weeks unless they get infected (which may have happened) -- but shortness of breath does not fit the picture at all. Do you know for a fact that it was a spider bite? It could have been something else entirely. See your doctor; the shortness of breath alone deserves an examination. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

A good exam would likely go a long way in determining the cause. ...Read more
Mosquito bite 3 days ago. Bruising present; never had reaction before. Headaches and diarrhea followed. Consistent for 3 days now. ?
Just a thought: but the appearance of the bite (eg bruising) is NOT typical of a mosquito bite and Springfield Mass NOT a place with any REPORTED mosquito borne illness thus far this season ( I am in Massachusetts) Sounds more like a SPIDER Bite with a reaction to the toxin .....some pretty "powerful" spiders exist in Western MA. Hope this helps See ILLUSTRATION DRZ ...Read more
Likely itch/scratch: The itch scratch cycle is a self perpetuating problem. When you scratch at the area, it actually re-injures it & triggers the release of local chemicals in the skin. Later you scratch/injure it again and so on. A cool compress can stop some of the itch,If you stop scratching, or cover the area so you can't get at it, the issue should disappear. ...Read more
My daughter has an insect bite - it's red, swollen and painful - after 3 days, the initial bite site is bubbling up. What should we do to treat it?
Infection: Mild itchiness and redness initially may be normal. However pain, progressive swelling, progressive redness with streaking, warmth are signs of infection. Warm washcloth multiple times daily dilates blood vessels allowing the ingress of white blood cells. See a physician as antibiotics may be indicated. ...Read more

Poss. bee sting/insect bite 1wk ago. Had pain for 2days, itchy 1day, then ok. Woke up yesterday w/ red itchy blotches around sting area. What's wrong?
Not unusual: This is not that uncommon a reaction from a sting. If it does not have pus in it, the problem will likely resolve in a few days. If the problem is persistent, then one needs to consider whether part of the stinger was left in the sting site. If there is pus (unlikely for bee sting), then an antibiotic may be required.See doctor if problem persists or gets worse. ...Read more
