Customer Question

I have 3 bump bites on my leg. Two pretty close together on my knees and one further down on my shin. They are red and itchy. It could be a flea bump but it also looks similar to scabie bites. The 2 bumps on my knee actually looked like an insect buried in it. I had to pluck it out

This is Dr. David

you should go to the ER or to your doctor and get a skin exam

they can pull out the insects and identify them at the hospital labs.

these could be bed bug bites. you should check your mattress for bedbugs

and also check your animals and carpets of your home for fleas as well.

you could have a skin infection, you might need a course of antibiotics.

you have to see a doctor or else you will not know what is causing your infection.

let me know if you have questions.
