I have a red spot on my hand. Looks like an insect bite

Customer Question

i have a red spot on my hand. Looks like an insect bite although it appeared out of nowhere. Now i have noticed a much smaller spot on the hand close to it. Also appeared out of nowhere. What do these look like? Can they be an underlying symptom of a more
serious illness?

Hi there,

This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Are these spots painful?

Hair folicle infection or folliculitis is a possibility then.

Otherwise, this can be due to the ingrown hair causing the bump if not painful.

Prominent blood capillary or angioma is also possible --a benign condition.

These are not concerning.

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.
