Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
It appears that you are having an allergic or a hypersensitivity
reaction to an insect bite. I would suggest the following measures:
- You can take an anti-allergy medication such as Cetrizine
or Pheneramine. This will decrease the skin lesion as well as decrease the itching and irritation
- You can apply a topical application such as Calamine
lotion, over the affected area. This will keep the area dry and soothe the irritation
- Avoid picking on the lesion as this can sometimes cause additional infection.
- Often the best way to prevent hypersensitivity or allergic reactions is to avoid the trigerring factor. So, keep yourself away from mosquito or insect bites
by using insect repellants or nets.
If your problem doesn't resolve despite these measures, then I would suggest that you consult a Dermatologist
for further evaluation and management.
Wish you all the best.
Dr. Sheeba Stephen
