A fly bit on my neck around 2-3 days back. It has lead to red spot on that area and further the spots increased with time. I am not sure whether some of the spots have come as I shaved my beard at that time as well. But, such spots have never appeared due to shaving in the past. I have attached pictures of the same. Kindly guide me.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I have gone through your complaints and seen the attached photographs (attachment removed to protect patient identity).
According to me, the small spots are due to pseudofolliculitis which is because of inflammation caused by shaved hair.
I would recommend you to apply steroid antibiotic combination like Mometasone and Fusidic acid combination on the affected area twice daily for 7-10 days. Also apply the same cream on the insect bite area. If these spots are itchy take tablet Levocetirizine 5 mg one tablet daily at bedtime.
Inflammation due to shaved hair.Probable diagnosis:
Avoid shaving for few days.
