Thanks for sharing the pictures

It does seem like an insect bite

You must apply Sudocrem over it

You can take Tylenol and Zyrtec to help with pain and itching

It will go away in few days

My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. I will be glad to help you always.
