I think I have an insect bite on my leg but it's been there

Customer Question

Hi, I think I have an insect bite on my leg but it's been there about 2 months. It's very sore to the touch, angry red and the area around it has become very hard.
JA: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?
Customer: Nothing seems to help it (I've tried heat matches) yes, there has been some swelling around the area
JA: Is there anything else the Doctor should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: No, I don't think so. Thank you
