Rosie please get that bite looked if it looks funny. Too tired to spell so copied this from NHS site.

'Secondary bacterial infections are a common complication of insect bites and stings. They include:

  • impetigo - a highly contagious bacterial infection that causes sores or blisters
  • cellulitis - an infection that makes your skin red, swollen and painful
  • folliculitis - inflammation (redness and swelling) of one or more hair follicles (the small hole in your skin that an individual hair grows out of)
  • lymphangitis - an infection that causes red streaks in your armpit or groin and swollen lymph nodes (small glands that are part of the immune system) '

Hey Cathy,

Thanks.  I also read that stuff earlier when I was trying to find out if I should be worried or not.  I shall let it lie for a bit and see if it gets any better. 

Amazing what these little critters can do!
