I have an insect bite with a red line trailing from it

I woke up saturday (4/17/2010) with a itchy spot on my chest. Looked like a masquito bite. It is now 4/20/2010 and the bite is itchy. Looks like a sunburn. I believe this morning I noticed a red line about 3 inches long, looks like a sun burn as well...coming from the bite. What to do????

Hi ShellieC524,

If you have an insect bite that you think may be infected please see your doctor for help.

Here is a WebMD article about bug bites to help you:
