Calamine lotion would help. ...Read more

Can't access your : File, but they may be anything. You would benefit from an in-person visit that would allow a full-body dermatologic exam, and, if indicated, a scraping or biopsy. It is a sign of some kind of inflammation, which could result from a number or combination of things: viral, bacterial, (& rarely) helminth infection; toxin; neoplasia; autoimmune, etc. With a pen trace borders to monitor growth/sizes. ...Read more

3 spots on my arm- looks like each has 2-3 small bites in the middle with a red rash around them. They are warm & sorta itchy. What kind of insect?

Need more info.: Probably a venous insect due to the warmth and redness, but it depends on your exposure to outdoor versus indoor environments, when they appeared, where you live, whether you have pet (that can have fleas) or where sitting on a rock in Texas (fire ant bites), before they appeared. Also, of interest are how large the bites are, and history of allergy (bee stings, etc.). ...Read more
