Welcome to XXXXXXX

Insect bite generally develops as single swelling with redness, itchiness and pain, but it left you with 2 red lines, thus, are you sure that it was a insect bite.

You can apply ointment like Surfaz-SN/Quadriderm lightly on it thrice daily.

You will also require anti-inflammatory analgesic, anti-histaminic and antibiotic course orally. Thus you should visit your Physician/Dermatologist for examination and prescription of treatment.

Please get your blood sugar (F&PP) also checked.

With good wishes,
