User :   I have some small sores on my neck that have spread over the last couple of days. I'm not touching them excessively and they don't seem to heal, only spread. The skin over them is very weak and if touched a small amount of clear liquid appears. I was bitten/stung on the neck a few days ago my some sort of flying insect in France but didn't get a good look at it. It doesn't seem like typical symptoms of an insect bite/sting but the spot I was bitten on is where these soars have developed and spread from. Any ideas/treatment?
