Customer Question

Last night I noticed right in front of my ear and right below it was sore to the touch. Today, I noticed that just below my ear I have a swollen gland. This is just after I found what appears to be small red itchy bumps in my hairline...possibly a bug bite? Do I need to be concerned?

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

This is a legitimate chat forum, correct? I woke up
I woke up yesterday morning with what appeared to be five bug bites. One of the bites on my left arm, I could clearly identify two marks where fangs pierced the skin. They were not immediately itchy, but throughout the day, they became itchy at different times. Two of them on my right arm became extremely swollen (more than 2 inches of swelling around the bite site), the area is warm to the touch, and they are all very itchy today. I visited urgent care last night, because I don't currently have health insurance, and I was prescribed prednisone. Today, they continue to be red, swollen and warm. They have also re-developed heads that are turning black. I was also very concerned because my upper arms had a very lacy appearance last night, and I noticed a lot of little red dots, as if capillaries were being affected. Should I be concerned about cellulitis? … read more
