Insect bites like bumps in the anus

Hi my 21 month old son has insect-bite likes bumps/ pimples in his anus area which he finds extremely itchy and also has it in the back of his neck and behind the knees in the folds of his legs. The Sudo antiseptic cream I have been using seems to ease itchiness and heal the bites but there were new bites in his anus area this morning. What is causing this?

Thanks for your query.

I will try my best to provide you with best possible professional recommendations to your questions.

If it is due to insect bite and there is only redness and pain at the site of the bite, application of ice is adequate treatment. Clean the area with soap and water to remove contaminated particles left behind by some insects.

Refrain from scratching because this may cause the skin to break down and an infection to form. You may treat itching at the site of the bite with an over-the-counter antihistamine. Calamine lotion also helps relieve the itching. Minimize your exposure to insect bites.

In my opinion if you are not sure whether it is insect bite, then he should be evaluated to rule out worm infestation. like thread worm. In case of worm infestation, de worming should be done.

So i advice you, firstly prevent exposure to insect even after that if rashes appear go for stool examination of your child.

Yet again, I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
