I Had 3, what I thought, were insect bites. the itch was incredible. went to a dermatologist & she prescribed cream, Permathrin Cream. I used as prescribed 3 times over a 6 week period. But, it did not work. I have a printers loop & kept an eye on my skin. The lesions had tiny white larvae & bugs were present & plenty. The doctor did a biopsy for scabies but it was negative. She said just let them heal. Well, they're still active & are forming white lines on my arms & sometimes they swell. i'm at my wits end. can someone help?

Hi. I was bitten by something I think at the beach 3 weeks ago. At first I thought it was a misquito bite but it formed a knot and is now a purple spot about the size of a dime. The knot is still there. It hurts very little if I mash on it. Is this something I should be concerned about? I have had no other symtoms and I do not know what would have bitten me. For the first several days it itched and I would scratch the top off thinking it would go away but for the past 2 or so weeks its just been the purple knot. I don t know if I should see a doctor or not. I figured if it was something to be concerned about I would have more symptoms I do have Behcets disease (an autoimmune disease) so I worry about things when the don t go away within a reasonable time. Thank you for your help.

I recently had these bites on my feet that looked like an insect bite. They went to the elbow area then in between my fingers. I thought they were maybe sand flea bites or bed bug bites. Now the feet have healed and the webs of the fingers, but they are now in my upper thighs, buttocks, and side of my torso. I have been using calamine lotion and alcohol to treat the areas. I just want to know what has bit me?

I believe I was bitten by an insect; I was working on an outdoor light timer and thought I received an electric shock, but the sensation has persisted. finger where the incident occurred is numb and has prickly feeling; that feeling has gone up to the elbow area. what do you think happened and do i need to do anything for it?
