Insect bite on knee, itching, numbness

I have what I think is some form of insect bite on my left knee next to my knee cap, I scratched it because it itched and then I realized hey wait a minute it s numb for about a two inch around, I can t even feel my self poke it with my finger nail almost like when you are numb from dental work. anyway it s starting to spread the numbness down my leg and up my leg a little this has been about 5 days since I first noticed it where the little pin prick little bite was has now healed over and no infection or further scarring is can be seen?

You do not worry about the problem. its is the normal cascade of mosquito bites. the only precaution you must follow is not to touch, pinch pop or squeeze any of them other wise it can get infected and can cause complications. You can apply hydrocortisone cream along with benadryl.
