Went to Florida about 6 weeks ago and got a couble of bites on my leg which went away. I also got one my back at the top, well I presume it was a bite.
Sometimes it itches and bleeds and it still feels like a lump. I looked it up on the internet and wish I hadn't. Should I go to the doctor to check it out or will he think I am stupid as there is hardly anything there, just a pea sized lump at most that sometimes itches a little. It is in a hard to see place bit it looks like it has a little punture hole in it.

I would go if it's been there for 6 weeks! You could go and see the practice nurse aswell if you don't want to see the GP.

I suppose I know I should go. Just hate the doctors and its a bugger to get an appointment at our surgery.
