I have this nasty red itchy blotch on my skin and its not a mosquito bite. what is it?
Hello and welcome, I am happy to help you today.

How does it look like: a red pimply rash, ring like or patchy?

Have you used anything?

How many are there?

I am still available online to respond after you answer my query / queries.

It is a very irregular blotchy type lesion.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I have tried calamine lotion on it and its still growing and spreading. its very irregular in shape.

Alright.

This could be a bug bite in that area.

Another possibility is sun burn rash.

Besides calamine lotion, use hydrocortisone 1%, a very mild OTC steroid. Along with it, use aloe vera lotion that will moisturize the area after using the steroid cream.
For the itching, use benadryl ointment over the lesion.

This should take care of it but if you see no change or the area increases in size, consult your GP/ health care provider for a clinical examination.

I hope my answer has helped you.

Um Hydrocortisone cream makes me break out in hives. Allergic to Hydrocortisone. I will try the benedryl ointment though.

OK. Use polymyxin B / mupirocin instead and the aloe vera gel too.

Make sure you avoid using Fragrant soaps which could make the rash more irritable and slow down its healing process.

I hope my answer has helped you.

Try neosporin ointment, I bet you are not allergic to it!!

It was a pleasure assisting you.
