They certainly: could be insect bites of some sort, but sound more like a reaction to something. It is difficult to tell w/o seeing them. I would recommend you see your own doctor to diagnose the cause of the rash. Meanwhile you could take an oral antihistamine such as Benadryl (diphenhydramine) (but don't take if you are driving; it can make you sleepy) or Claritin or Allegra. ...Read more

What does a brown recluse spider bite look like I have a bite on index finger and the skin is coming off. It burns and itches, has little ant bite type bumps

A : A brown recluse bite can have different appearances. There can be almost no signs of the bite or there can be a dark escar (scab) with surrounding white tissue (that is dead). In some cases the brown recluse's bite can be necrotoxic and cause very severe damage. It can large amounts of skin to die and can eat into the muscle as well. This type of reaction is usually associated with fever, muscle and joint pain and feeling very ill. I can not diagnose the cause of your symptoms. Brown recluses are actually very little and non-descript looking. If your skin is sloughing off your finger - do recommend that this be medically evaluated. ...Read more

May I suggest a Virtual Visit on HealthTap? We could probably diagnose & treat if indicated. ...Read more
