Patient: Can someone tell me whether this is just a bug bite or an allergic reaction on my moms hand?
Doctor: This seems to be a reaction to an insect bite. The nature of the insect, however, cannot be ascertained . It would subsi de faster with an anti-histaminic medication (taken as a single dose). You may consult your physician, in case your mother develops more such reactions over her body in the next few hours to days.
