Thank for asking to the HCM
I really appreciate your concern and looking to the history given here I could say that such sudden onset of lesion could be due to the insect bite and this would be differentiated, for the symptomatic relief "Diphenhydramine lotion " can be tried, hope this information helps you, take care and have a nice day.
