Avoid scratching: In order to help your bites heal I would avoid scratching. Your nails are dirty as well and puts you at risk for skin infection.

See primary doctor if bites look infected. ...Read more

The only one I would worry about is a tick bite, especially if it was present for a long time. It is sometimes associated with Lyme disease. But symptoms would not show up for several weeks.
