Suggest remedy for itchy red mark on neck

I have a red mark on my neck that looks like a bruise. There is a little lump in the middle about the size of a mosquito bite. I don t remember being bitten ,but today, three days since this mark appeared it is itchy when I touch it. The mark was round circle the first day but now it is larger and uneven.

Dermatologist 's  Response
Hello,

It may be contact dermatitis due to some irritants, fungal infection or a few others. You can apply ice, lotion calamine and can take one antihistamine.

If it does not resolve, increases or new lesions appears, then please contact a dermatologist.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Surajit Gorai
