HI
Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern and looking to the history given here I could say that if this is the insect bite then this need to be treated with Acetaminophen and Ibuprofen if needed then antibiotic can be added but this depends upon the further clinical condition, and nothing to worry about this, take care and have a nice day.
