Insect bite painful, swollen, has reddish purple color, and is a white pimple- like bump that popped. It is on a toddler's second toe.

Insect bite: Is what it sounds like. A small area like a toddlers toe will swell impressive. My favorite treatment for insect/ spider bites is a raw onion... Slice it and rub on the affected bite area tl the juice is dry (a couple minutes). It neutralizes the toxin and reduces swelling. If it is painful or getting worse, see your child's doctor. ...Read more

They appear usually at the 3 and 9 o'clock position, the area most exposed to sun wind and floating particulate matter in air. No urgency. The become inflamed often and the eye becomes uncomfortable.

A mosquito bit my baby on her breast nipple and it turn red n hard within 24hrs and a boil appeared. Can mosquitoes cause boils?& how to treat it?

Depends: The proteins in the mosquito saliva can cause and inflammatory reaction that causes an itchy red bump. Any insect bite can become infected especially if it is scratched open. Keep it clean with soap and water. Keep the child from scratching it by covering the bite or placing something on the child's hands. I recommend having it assessed by a dr for infection and need for additional medication. ...Read more

can't get to see a doctor for 6 weeks

Why 6 weeks?: Was it a seborrheic keratosis? By the time you see a Dr in 6 weeks it will no longer be red or tender. When you go, let's hope the Dr can identify it precisely. If not, a biopsy will settle it. Not urgent. ...Read more
