I have been getting what appears to be bug bites on my legs, ankles, stomach and back sporadically for a few months. They come out of nowhere, and they look pretty much like a mosquito bite and are extremely itchy. They appear red but when I scratch them they almost become invisible because they turn the shade on my skin. They seem to last for at least a week and cause alot of discomfort, then it just goes away. But it seems to happen every few weeks, I was wondering if you know what the problem could be?
Insect bites canât appear from nowhere ... but allergies can appear from nowhere. You can apply some anti-allergic balsam on the skin lesions. Such types of balsam can also help if the lesions are due to insect bites. Then, you can contact your GP or a dermatologist for an expert opinion.
