We understand the concerns that you feel
Mouse bites that are red and itchy can be caused by various causes including keloids, allergies to certain objects or substances or irritation.
Ideally, further examination is needed to determine the skin disorder that is being experienced. Redness of the scars and small lumps such as herpes sores can be caused by the growth of keloids. Keloids are excessive growth of scar tissue in the scar area. Keloids can also cause itching and discomfort in the affected skin.
Irritation or allergies can also trigger these complaints. Allergies to substances such as topical drugs used, exposure to chemicals from the environment or exposure to clothing or objects around can also trigger similar complaints.
To find out more precisely what skin disorders you are experiencing, we recommend that you do the examination directly to the nearest doctor for further evaluation. To help relieve the symptoms of itching, you can give anti-itching ointments or liquid powder containing antihistamines. Consult more fully with your doctor to get treatment that suits your condition.
