I was at the pool sunday. about 85 degrees. and didnt wear sunscreen.Im not pale but not dark. was in the pool for about an hour. and laid out on my stomach for about 2 -3 hours. the sunburn was not ...
I got bit by some kind of bug a couple of days ago while I was at the pool. I thought it was just a mosquito so I just brushed it off and forgot about it. When I got home the area started to swell up and it began to itch and it was a little painful. Its still swollen, it still itches, and it still hurts but I don't know what to do about it. I've tried taking Benadryll, putting ice on it, and putting anti-itch cream on it but nothing helps. Is this something serious? The size of the swollen area is about the size of a credit card.
You should see a doctor or dermatologist and make sure the area is not infected or that you have cellulitis, or you might just be having an allergic reaction to the bite. In the meantime, I would apply warm to hot wet compresses to try to soothe it down.
The size of a credit card? I'd be getting that looked at by a doctor.
