Insect bite, day 2. Image 3 of 3. Patient with an insect bite on their thigh. The patient has scratched the skin to relieve the feeling of itchiness. This has caused the skin to become more inflamed and the blister that was developing to burst. Scratching a bite can lead to a serious infection. See M320/392-394 for a sequence showing the development of the bite.
