Brief Answer:
what bit you?

Detailed Answer:

do you know what bit you? Was it an insect? Mosquito? Ticks? An animal?

Is there any discoloration on the affected part of the skin? Can you upload a photo of the lesions?

If they're itch lesions from a mosquito (which sounds likely) an antihistamine cream or pill may help. Avoid to irritate it (no scratching).

I'll be glad to continue this discussion when you provide more details.

Kind Regards!

I don't know what bit me.This forum doesn't have the ability to upload a photo. Looking at the bites,it looks like 2 mosquito bites,with fingertip bruises around the bites. I am sure it was an insect.

Brief Answer:
you can upload it

Detailed Answer:
Sure you can upload photos. I can't guide you through this process but the helpdesk can. If you can't or don't want to bother, you can either upload it elsewhere and send me the link or send them directly at my email address ( YYYY@YYYY ). Remember to send a question also, so I will be able to post an answer...

If it's mosquito bites then there is no worry. They'll go away even without treatment. Just avoid scratching them because scratching makes inflammation worse.

Kind Regards!
