Hello,

The symptoms seem to be related to a bug bite. I suggest using an antihistamine such as Cetirizine 10 mg daily. I also suggest using Calamine lotion for local application.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
