Hi doctor,

I have some skin issue on my face. It looks as if some insect has bitten on it and a bit swollen. Is that due to some allergy?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through your query and can understand your health concern.

  • I have seen the photographs (attachment removed to protect patient identity). It looks like some insect bite only.
  • Avoid scratching that area if you develop itch. You can take some antihistamine drug like tablet Levocetirizine 5 mg twice daily for five days.
  • If you have pain, then take tablet Acenac-P (Aceclofenac and Paracetamol) twice daily for five days. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and take the medicine with consent.
  • Avoid touching that area frequently and do not apply anything over it.
