Dermatology Questions? Ask an Online Dermatologist.
Welcome to JA and thanks for asking
If you have been feeling discomfort and pain along with dark discoloration of the area, an infection needs to be ruled out.
Its usual to have some degree of pain and swelling after the bite but if it is persisting or you have developed discoloration of the skin i would suggest to get it examined.
Taking some anti inflammatory like Ibuprofen will help in relieving the pain and swelling but if it is infected than you might require a course of antibiotic.
If you want to give any further information or send a picture you are most welcome
Feel free to ask if you have any more question
Please leave a POSITIVE (3 – 5 stars, preferably 5) rating by clicking on the stars above, until you do i am not compensated for my time. You can continue to ask follow-up questions even after the POSITIVE rating
