    Non-itchy Bug Bites that don't go away? What can they be?
    IvyLoveless posted:
    Can anyone please help least a year ago, possibly longer...I noticed what seemed to look like a bug bite (raised flesh colored bump) on upper didn't itch and unless you ran your hand over my skin you couldn't really see it was can only feel the bump. That bump has never gone away and I have gotten a couple more on the back of my lower shoulder (near armpit) and another on upper thigh /buttocks..the size is generally the size of a dime or slightly smaller ..any idea what they are and if they ever go away? Thanks
    Mohiba K Tareen, MD responded:
    Given the duration of these skin lesions, I think it would be appropriate to consult your dermatologist. These could be anything from eczema to a hypersensitivity reaction to a pre-lymphoma condition. It is best to have them evaluated.

    Please keep up posted.
