Hi there.

I read your question with interest. Thanks for writing in to HCM.

It is very possible given the location & the description they are bites & fleas et al may be implicated especially if you have carpets or pets.

Dermatology however, is a very visual line & as such, requires some clear visual digital photographs or to be seen on the ground by a dermatologist nearest you for best results.

It may also require a skin biopsy so in your case, best to visit a dermatologist nearest you.

Do try to use an ointment containg betamethasone-3% salicylic acid preparation twice/day for 3-5 days & observe if they disappear but leave an area free for a skin biopsy if required at a later date.

Cheers & Good Luck!
