Insect Bites


Insect Bites? What do they look like?

They are a common cause of itching and rash during the spring and summer months.  They typically appear as small red bumps on exposed areas such as the ankles, legs, and arms. These bumps are very itchy and uncomfortable. Most will usually resolve on their own within a few days, but some insect bites will last 1-3 months. The dermatology professionals at Kentucky Dermatology can assess your skin condition and determine if treatment is necessary.

What are the treatment options for bites?

Treatment options include corticosteroid injections, prescription antihistamines and topical corticosteroid creams.
