Dr Hive - bug bite rash?


Recommended Posts

Is it warm to touch? Dd had a similar looking rash, though bigger, last summer. It was hot to touch. Took her to an urgent care (it was over a weekend) and they put her on antibiotics. It was likely cellulitis from a bug bite. They were concerned about MRSA infection, but the antibiotics took care of it. It took a very long time to fade.


If it is warm or hot, I would make an appt. Either way, you should take a pen or sharpie and outline the edges to see if it is growing or shrinking as you continue to monitor it.
