While moving used furniture at work I was either bitten by insects and/or came into contact with something that caused immediate marks on my skin. This happened on two different occasions. The first time left small marks on my wrists that definitely resembled bite marks and the effect was minimal. The second time I had a rash immediately appear on my wrist and it blistered rather quickly. I also had a red line forming from one of the first bite marks. I went to the ER and was put on Keflex and antihistamines. I also followed up with my doctor as well as a dermatologist. After taking all meds for more than two weeks I still have new red marks forming daily, usually on my hands and forearms, although I've had some on my neck and face as well. The older mark have faded nicely but all the new ones concern me. I'd like to know if there is something more I can do to get these toxins out of my system or if I just have to let them run their course. Should I see some other specialist and, if so, what kind?
