I was bitten on the leg by an insect ( flea?) a few years ago and this resulted in a leg infection which was cured by means of a course of antibiotics. However from time to time ( say 1-2 months) I get an itchy spot ( as if I have just been bitten) in the same area of the old site of the bite and after 20 mins it goes back down to normal without any medication.
Could you enlighten me on the reasons why this occurs.
I am the same, in the same area (back of thigh) which I was bitten over 10 years ago - like you it flares up now and again gets very itchy..then it goes
I do have anti-histmanes - but do not want to take them all the time - any advice would be appreciated
