Hi I woke up with four bumps on the outside skin of my penis they feel like ant or mosquito bites idk what they can be I need help I am sexually activ?
Different things: There are many causes of bumps on the penis. They can be actual bug bites. Scabies is also possible. There are other disorders like lichen planus, urticaria, follicular eczema, psoriasis, or an allergic reaction or contact dermatitis. Infections can include warts or molluscum. Herpes can present with bumps, but they are small painful blisters. Would recommend evaluation by a dermatologist.
A few days usually: Occasionally, people will have a delayed-type hypersensitivity reaction to mosquito bites. I am one of those people. The initial redness (relatively mild) lasts a day or two, followed by persistent redness and itching that goes on for a week or more. Hydrocortisone cream is your friend under these circumstances.

Bites on back of leg that r large like mosquito bites, and are very itchy, but also hurt a bit. Tiny bump on top that looks like ant bite? What is it
I have blisters on my leg from a mosquito bite or ant bite they keep filling up with some kind of liquid what could it be?
Mosquito bites: An over-the-counter 1% Hydrocortisone cream can help relieve itching.
Skin: Intact skin and mucous membranes are the bodies' number one defense against infection. Insect bites disrupt that and if you are a skin carrier of staphylococci they may create infection in the form of boils, or skin abscesses.

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.See 1 more doctor answer

Severely scratched some mosquito bites years ago which left scars that now look like darker patches of skin. Is there way 2 reduce that discoloration?
Hyperpigmentation: This kind of hyperpigmentation, or increased pigment production, will fade with time. Use sunscreen, to prevent them from staying dark. A dermatologist may have other options. I am also very concerned by the other conditions that you listed. Please, please talk to your parents, a school counselor or a help line ASAP!! There are so many ways and so many people, out there, to help you feel better!

It is possible.: There are many things that could cause a skin rash. Several types of inflammatory conditions of the skin, allergic reactions, sun exposure, insect bites, and sometimes bacterial, viral or fungal infections can cause rashes on the skin. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.
Allergy to meds: You can be allergic to topical agents for itching.
Usually not: Usually not; this is more commonly see with fire ant bites. However, if local bacterial infection results from the mosquito bite, then yes, a whitehead can form. As long as it's confined to a small area, does not seem to go deep, and there is no fever, it is reasonable to do warm water soaks, soap and water washes, and maybe a little antibiotic ointment. And worse i'd see the doc.
