A:   Hello,
Thank you for you query at AskTheDoctor.com

I understand your concern.
It looks like an insect bite. You should clean the area properly with Dettol and observe the area.
If the redness increases or there is a swelling, you may have to start antibiotics.
Otherwise, you can just apply Calamine lotion, and if there is itching then you can take Tab. Levocetirizine 5 mg once daily at bedtime for 3 days.

Hope this was helpful,
Regards
