hello anonymous,
welcome to the health care magic forum,the scabs after insect bite usually resolve or heal in few days time but due to some reasons its not getting healed in your case ,you can go for antimarks cream available in the market but ist always safe to bhave an opinion of a dermatologist ,dont try different soaps which might injure you skin further..

i was biten i n morroco by an insect that i sat on my mistake. it had a burning sting like you get when you get an inocculation injection put in to the muscle. It stung for 24 hrs. Then remained raised for about 3 days. it has 3 puncture marks which have now gone brown/black. Did not take a picture of the insect unfortunately but was told it was about 1inch in length and black. There were at the time in the room a couple of large wasps or bees but they were not black. this happened 4 weeks ago

I got a bug bite on my left ring finger yesterday evening which immediately swelled up and went numb. Plus my finger turned black and blue. I applied ice, cortisone cream, etc and it did stop hurting but in the morning the finger was still black and blue and somewhat numb. Went to nurse at work who immediately cut off my ring (wedding ring (:). The swelling is going done although some residual in the lower joint closest to my knuckle; that area is also black and blue. I can bend the finger in all joints, there is little pain in the lower part and numbness is gone. I am concerned about the bruising/black and blue. Should I go to the emergency room?
