Developing rash 2 weeks after insect bite

Was camping in the North part of Germany for a week when I discovered I had been bitten by an unknown insect, 2 days later it turn into the top left attached picture.

Over a period of 2 weeks the circle started to go and thought all was fine, but then i noticed some itching and 6-7 little spots had appeared. I decided to document its development over a period of 4 days.
The latest picture today is in the bottom right as the spots got bigger and have new merged into one.

The doc has given me some antibiotic cream to apply 3 times a day which i think is helping.

Just thought I would ask here as nobody was quite sure what it was. Also you might find the developing pictures interesting too.
