I have recently seen some bites on my upper thigh and even a couple on my genital area and they look like small pimples and itchy with redness?

I have recently seen some bites on my upper thigh and even a couple on my genital area and they look like small pimples and itchy with redness?

Many possibilities: Any of several skin conditions could cause this. Although people often assume insect bites, it's an uncommon cause. But I do wonder about scabies, or perhaps pubic lice (crabs). Or folliculitis, i.e. hair follicle inflammation, especially if you shave the area. No STD is a likely cause. See a doctor or clinic if more spots keep appearing or if not clearing up in a few days. Good luck! ...Read more

It is not scarring, and it will fade over time but it may take weeks to months for it to do so. Make sure you are applying spf30 to the areas to ensure that sunlight does not prolong the hyperpigmentation. ...Read more
