Itchy spots on face. How to cure it?

Some times I get itchy spots on my face; usually on my chin or jaw like area. Similar to a bug bite in symptoms. After itching I find that the area becomes pusy or watery like. Minutes later the area or scab becomes a hard clear crystal like substance that is Amber in color. The strange thing about the scab is that it is rock hard and looks like a crystal.

hi..thanks for your query

You may be having localized urticaria complicated secondarily due to itching.This is an idiopathic condition in most cases.I would advise you to notice if any food,smell or any other external allergens are causing it.Do not scratch the lesion at all.You can have oral anti allergic medicine like Allegra or Cetrizine to reduce it.

If you are having the symptoms since long , you ca undergo a Patch testing to confirm the allergens and avoid the same.In creation cases a bloodwork might be required to rule out internal causes .

Hope this is helpful.Take care!
