Suggest treatment for an insect bite
Can wait for few days, topical steroid and antibiotic cream; antihistaminic
Thanks for being at Healthcaremagic
I have gone through your complaints and according to them you seem to be having an insect bite hypersensitivity reaction.
No need to see the doctor if the lesion is getting smaller in size.
You can wait for few days.
I would recommend you to apply topical steroid and antibiotic cream like neosporin ointment and cortisone cream on the affected area twice daily for 5-7 days.
If it is associated with itching and stinging you can take antihistaminic like tablet Cetrizine 10 mg once daily at bedtime for 5-7 days.
This should help in resolving it.
