In the absence of any picture of your skin lesions, it appears likely that you are suffering from a superficial skin infection at the site of your bite injury. The abrasive effect of the itching could have caused the infection to spread over a larger area around the bite mark. This condition can be managed easily by oral antibiotics and topical application of antiseptic ointments. You should visit a Dermatologist at the earliest, for appropriate therapy.
