Hi there...insect bite reactions are common in India. Usually they heal spontaneously on their own in few days. But sometimes complications like itching, swelling, reddness, id eruptions can occur and persist for long time. You need to consult a dermatologist for further evaluation and treatment. You will probably require mild steroid topical application and oral antihistamines.
