Hi, I’m a new member! I have a query. Today after work I noticed on my lower right side abdomen a red mark. Looking closer to it
I noticed 3 bite marks in a row and 1 bite mark across about half an inch apart. Seems like an insect sucked my blood.
Around the bite marks I saw a pinkish area spreading into a circle like an allergic reaction or maybe hive from the bite??
The Pinkish area around the red bite marks spreads in larger area then smaller.

Is it Possible for someone to help me indicate what kind of insect bite is this?

Hi and welcome! Does it look like a bulls eye with the bite being in the center?

To post a picture you need to find an off site photo site such as photobucket.com. You can then copy and paste a link of the picture on here.

Also i had this almost same occurence about 4 years ago but it was spreading like crazy like rashes and moving like waves all over my body from head to toe.
I took 4 cortisone shots in order for this to go away.

In todays incident seems stable and has not progressed all over.


Thank you.

I couldn't say for sure what the bite is but it could be a spider bite of some kind.  I had a bad reaction to a yellow jacket once that spread, swelled and itched like crazy.  I had to take a round of prednisone to get rid of it.  If it doesn't get better soon you should see your dr. especially if you have swelling.

I'm not quite sure what bit you either but you are definately having some sort of reaction to it. If it gets worse definately get into the doctors. You don't remember feeling anything biting you? I have never seen an insect biting in the same area more then once unless maybe it happened in your sleep and you "pinned" a spider of some sort? What kind of spiders are dominant in your area?
