Heya g-mcmann. This does seem like an insect bite reaction. However, your history suggests you are unaware what insect it actuall was. It may still benefit you to use a topical antibiotic-steroid combination cream for a few days & an antihistamine. You may follow this with any aloevera based cream to moisturise & help get a better looking picture over the next 2-3 weeks; If it persists, see your dermatologist..cheers & get beeter soon..Dr Praveen Rodrigues MD, Bangalore, India
