Implant skin area itches. Why has size doubled?

Ive had the implant in for two years. One year ago I noticed a really itchy spot on the surface or the skin above my implant. I then got this twice after with a couple of months inbetween. Ive got it again now but it has doubled in size this time, and alot more itchier. It looks almost like an insect bite. Please help, Georgia

It could either be an insect bite or eczema, because you are getting it repeatedly. You should show yourself to the doctor who performed the implant and make sure nothing is wrong with it.
