Just before Christmas I got what looked like a mosquito bite

Customer Question

Just before Christmas I got what looked like a mosquito bite on my breast. Initially it was painful then itchy and then gradually calmed down. Last week it started to become sore and although I have been treating it with Sudocrem it is still sore and uncomfortable and slightly itchy but won't go.
