Thanks for posting asking about the insect bites you have around your neck and shoulder area.
As one of the bites has got worse and is red, moist and sore, it’s important to contact your GP to get it checked out and see if it has become infected. If you have a wait to speak to your GP, you could see one of the practice nurses or seek advice from your local pharmacist. They may suggest something that would help.
We offer a range of free supportive services that you might be interested in. Including our resources that are particularly for those who have come to the end of their main hospital treatment. These are known as our Moving forward services and include our Moving Forward booklet and Moving Forward courses.
The courses are open to people who have had a primary breast cancer diagnosis and have finished their hospital-based treatment within the last two years.
