Invisible But Very Painful On The Skin

I experienced something invisible but very painful on the skin.
It felt like an insect bite on the inner side of my left elbow but even after careful look I did not see any creature.
I applied coconut oil and an antiseptic cream but for about 10 to 15 minutes the pain did not go. I also felt that a creature with spikes on its body is moving around that area. After some time it was OK.
Next day the same thing happened on my right hand at almost the same time after putting on the night suit and after going to bed. I though it probably had to do with my shirts that whose sleeves were touching that place.
Anyway, once again I could not see any creature, it must had been very tiny. Once again I very clearly felt the painful creature moving around few centimetres here and there.
I pressed it, rubbed it, washed it, oiled it and put some cream but it stayed for some time.
Two days later now I can see red dots on those places on both hand. So there was definitely something that was invisible to naked eyes. The place is exactly where the doctors push syringe needles to draw blood for testing.
The dots are really small and looks like the ones from a bed bug. They are not becoming bigger or brighter and I hope that they will disappear in next few day.
I also do not have any discomfort at the moment, but I am worried
that the creature might be some parasite that has entered my body and would move to other parts and cause damage.
If I visit a doctor, he might dismiss this as some insect bite and wait for some other symptoms to develop.
I don't know. Should I consult a doctor anyway?
The decision to consult a doctor is entirely up to you. I think in your situation I would probably wait to see if there were any further symptoms developing.
It does sound rather like a bite or sting of some sort. Have you carefully checked your bed and bed linen to be sure that there wasn't something in your mattress seams or elsewhere that could have bitten or stung you?
I personally don't know what parasite this would be if it is a parasite. It's not acting like one of the typically common ones, like bedbugs or scabies.
If your fear of it being an internal parasite is quite strong, you can take some cleansing herbs and probiotics just to be on the safe side.
If you can get some black walnut hull, wormwood, and clove, they are helpful in ridding the body of parasites.
For probiotics you may want to look for acidophilus, longum, and/or bifidum in some combination.
Take the probiotics at a separate time of day from the herbs.
I hope you don't have any further trouble from this invisible but very painful on the skin experience and that it doesn't happen again. To your good health!
