Hello and welcome to e health forum. ‎

Diagnosis of the cause of your possible bites, is not possible with the description provided. But it ‎seems that you appear to be having a allergic or inflammatory reaction to the bite. ‎

You can take some NSAIDs like Ibuprofen and Benadryl for a few days to allow the inflammation and ‎‎itching to ‎reduce. ‎Using a Hydrocortisone cream will also be helpful to relieve the symptoms. ‎

But for definitive management, you should consult your doctor and seek proper advice.
