Wrinkles, redness and itching on skin after an insect bite

I am 41 yrs old female. I had an insect bite on left part of neck. I was advised Tab Defza 24-Od x 5 days and Tab Lerafill-5mg HS and Zincoderm-GM ointment for local application. After 5 days the blackmess of skin has gone but wrinkles , redness and itching is there. Doctor says no further teatment and wait for skin to take its natural course. He is not telling how many days will it take. Pl. advise.

Hi Akhil,
Thanks for query,
it depends upon how severe is lesion.If deep layers of skin is affected it takes more time.
Now apply cream and moisturizing cream and wait.
within week time skin may have its normal colour and luster.
ok and bye.
