This problem starts a week ago and I’m pretty sure that it’s because of ants bitting me when I was asleep. I tried to get rid of the red spots by putting minyak batu, minyak angin and aecoras ointment but it doesn’t seem to work. Why does the red spots took a long time to heal? And what kind of medicine should I take? Btw, I have two health problems which is anemia and sinusitis. I hope you can help me.
