Hello
This might be from the bites.
It can be a side effect of some medications as well, and you need to talk with your doctor.
This also should be re examined given you have infection.
Sometimes tingling occurs with healing as well.
please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily.
