Hello! Are you still here???


sorry for the delay. please give me 5 mins

Sure! Thank you


thanks for your patience.

I reviewed the pictures.

It seems to be an insect bite, because there is a classic breakfast , lunch, dinner sign, where there are 3 red spots in a line.

there is nothing to worry. it will resolve with treatment.

I would advise you to apply cortisone cream mixed with neosporin cream twice a day for a week. they are both available over the counter.

intake of one tab of Tab.Allegra 180 mg daily for 5 days will help relieve the itching.

It is available over the counter.

Please let me know if you have any queries.

Hope my recommendations are helpful.

Take care

When you say insect bites - you don’t mean bed bugs or flea rash do you? I do have a few of cluster of spots on both my legs and arms though ... shall I worry? Do I need to treat my house? Thank you so much in advance for your answer


please do not worry.

it could be a one off event.

these are not bed bug bites, they are more transient and we do not see an entry point.

i would say, please treat these and only if you continue to get it, then you think of treating the house.
