Sorry i didnt see your ping just now

These look like insect bites, not an infection.

The toxins left by insects or mites can cause intense itching.

Please apply Hydrocortisone cream twice daily over the spots for 5 days.

Take Allegra or Cetrizine tablets twice daily for 3 days.

This will clear up in 2-3 days.

I hop this helps.
