In brief: Insect Bite

How sensitive you are to an insect's venom usually determines how you respond to its bite.
In many cases, you may experience pain, swelling, redness, or itching for a day or so or even skin peeling. The inflammation from the bite causes the skin to peel.

In brief: Resolving

As the skin repairs itself the damaged skin will peel away and the color will lighten.
This is a good skin if there is no swelling or heat associated with the bite.
