Insect Bites (Definition)

Other insect species, like bees, yellow jackets, wasps, hornets and fire ants actually inject venom into their prey and can not only cause localized pain and swelling, but severe, acute allergic reactions in ...Read more

Is there a rash or red itchy bumps from bed bugs

Bites: Bed bug bites may cause no symptoms or signs in some people. When there is a reaction, it may not show until several days after the bed bug has bitten.

Sound like a burn: Your symptoms are suggestive of a burn, or sunburn, as in a 1st degree burn, where you have redness and blisters but no true deep skin damage. It is typical for a rash to clear and have blisters left over; they are tiny areas of inflammation fluid left over from the active rash process. It sounds like it is resolving. If it persists are recurs, you should probably see a dermatologist. ...Read more

What could cause rash, blistering/swelling, and scabbing on ear.. With no history of burns, scrapes, insect bites, or contact with allergens?

What could cause rash, blistering/swelling, and scabbing on ear.. With no history of burns, scrapes, insect bites, or contact with allergens?

? Impetigo: What you describe sounds suspicious for impetigo, a strep infection of your skin. You can have a tiny break in your skin that you were not even aware of, and the normal skin bacteria could then enter in and cause a local strep infection. The "scabbing" is what makes me especially suspicious. Try washing with antibacterial wash, put on antibiotic ointment, and if not better in a few days, see doc. ...Read more

Red welts, initially appear as mosquito bites. Far more itchy. Form blister and liquid, which when dries turns yellowish. Treated for scabies. No luck?

Do you have one lesion vs many lesions, where are they located, is it itchier at night (common description with scabies), how often does it recur and how long does it last. ...Read more

What sort of bug bites cause a growing red blister?

What sort of bug bites cause a growing red blister?

Almost any kind.: Virtually any sort of bug bite can cause blistering. I generally don't recommend popping these blisters unless they are painful, because of the risk of infection. If it's not bothering you, cover it with a bandaid. If it itches, apply Hydrocortisone cream 2-3 times a day. If it gets painful or tender, or develops a red ring around it, see your doctor or a dermatologist. ...Read more

The skin on my scrotum & shaft is red, itchy, and swollen.No bumps of any kind.The scrotal skin is also oozing fluid.Is this a fungus or bacteria?

Either one: Either fungal infectioni or certain bacterial infections can do this. "Oozing fluid" suggests a fairly severe infection, so it may not be safe to attempt over-the-counter treatment, and it's possible you would benefit from an oral antibiotic prescription. See a doctor and take it from there. Good luck! ...Read more
