Customer Question

About 2 weeks ago I woke up and had a few bites on my legs. I had figured it was possibly bites from chiggers because I was cutting tall grass the day before. but recently the bites have seem to spread and move up my legs and now a few on my arm. they look like small mosquito bites and they aren't clumped together they are single individual bumps. trying to figure out what I should take to fix the problem.

do you have any advice on what it could be? or what I should do to resolve this issue?
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 6 months ago.

This is most likely from an allergic reaction can be due to grass and weeds itself. I would suggest you to take tablet loratadine 10 mg twice a day. It would decrease clumps and itching and this medicine is available over the counter.

Let me know if you have further questions.
