Hello dear,
Welcome to HCM.
I have read your query and understood your concern.

If it is a confirmed insect bite, then a combination cream is usually prescribed containing antibiotic and steroid depending upon the lesion.
i will advise you to visit your nearby doctor in person for proper examination so that correct advise can be given.

As per details, this is my best advise for you. You may discuss this with your treating doctor.
If you have any further query, you may ask me.
Good luck.
