Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.

Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe,such red streaks can be associated with allergic reaction from bite.

And you should apply cool compresses.

Also apply OTC 1% hydrocortisone cream mixed with Bacitracin ointment twice a day.

Take OTC Claritin and Motrin for 1-2 days.

If your symptoms'll spread then see your doctor ASAP.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.
