Got some type of insect bites and are very red what insect bite is it?

Cellulitis

Insect_sting
It would be impossible to tell which insect bites is that. Plus you don't see the insect so it is not necessary due to an insect bite. Cellulitis due to any reasons can looks like that red tender bump. Try using warm compress for about 30 minutes 4 times a day. If it does not improve or it gets worse, see a physician to see if abscess is formed and needed to be drained.

Infected insect bites? How can you tell, if it's big but no pus is coming out?

Insect bites

Antibiotic
Infection happens usually because of scratching. If the insect bite gets swollen, red, hard and tender, it's probably infection and will need an antibiotic prescribed by your doctor.

How can my boyfriend prevent getting infected insect bites on his legs? It looks really bad?

Don't Scratch

Extremity-leg
If it looks "bad" it sounds like it might already be infected and he needs to see his physician. To prevent infection, no scratching and apply neosporin.

Dr. Ahmad M Hadied answered:

What sort of problem is an allergic reaction to insect bite?

Let me help you?

Allergies
Insect bites and stings can cause an immediate skin reaction. The bite from fire ants and the sting from bees, wasps, and hornets are usually painful. Bites caused by mosquitoes, fleas, and mites are more likely to cause itching than pain.

What is the treatment for allergic reaction to insect bite?

Depends

Allergist
The answer depends on the severity of the allergic reaction. If it is mild- just some redness and itching, an antihistamine, such as benadryl will help. People who get severe reactions- such as difficulty breathing, or swelling of the mouth, tongue, or throat, should carry an Epi-pen, which is injectable epinephrine.
