Pediatrician 's  Response
Thanks for your interest in HCM.Any insect bite may cause immediate allergic reaction which should be treated by antihistamines and also soothening cream to apply over the bite area,otherwise it gets secondary infection which may be treated with antibiotics,if it does not subside with the above treatment,preferably under a Physician'care.
