About 6 days ago I noticed what looked like a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spider</span> bite on my right leg, it itched like crazy. I figured it would resolve itself over the next couple of days so mostly ignored it. I then started to notice other spots, they itch the same but look different. two on my left forearm they showed in a linear pattern, and two on my left leg that are also in a similar linear pattern.
Hello, I can understand your concern. It is very surprising <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spider</span> bite to present so long after the bite. I would advise a biopsy of the effected skin or culture of the fluid from the blisters to be done. During pregnancy most of the medications are contraindicated and hence diagnosis needs to be confirmed first before any line of treatment is decided. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
They have been there <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> over a week and are quite itchy. Each bite has a central ***** mark, like a beesting, and is swollen like a big misquito bite. The skin on top of each bite is dry and flaky (new today) and the skin around the cluster of bites is getting dark, like a slight bruise. I suspect that I was bitten by a spider while asleep. There was never any pain or stinging, just a lot of itching.
With a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spider</span> bite there is usually 2 very small puncture marks, sometimes not very visible. A scratch, no matter how small, by a animal can introduce bacteria and required medical attention. She may require an antihistamine or/or an antibiotic from the doctor. Apply a lot of natural set yogurt to the hand and keep it loosely bandaged and elevated. Get her to see her doctor for an accurate diagnosis and the appropriate treatment. Best wishes.

77 yr old father has red rash or bite marks on his legs - marks are almost in swirly lines - spider bites ? ladybug bites ?
They are itchy and painful. Not mosquito bite. Could it be <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spider</span> bites. Read up on bed bugs and I don't think that is the answer either. Do you have any suggestions? Could it be baby spider bites??? This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/244909'>Insect bites on penis scrotum and leg</a>.
If not he will be sending me to an ENT <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> scoping and a CT scan. I am in the Tampa, FL area <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> those who are asking.
The first one looks exactly how my recent one looks now (picture) but now after treating it with hydrocortisone, the bump went away and now its a flat surface except that area turned my skin white. I have an idea that it might be a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spider</span> bite but I am not sure. This bump is quite small, circle shaped, it irritates, and it has two little holes as if i got bitten.
They all have a small pinpoint head in the center and remind me of a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spider</span> bite. I had them before...maybe one or two on a finger and I have seen bumps like this before once or twice on my arm although those itched and I was pretty sure they were spider bites. They seem to just go away over time but I am curious as to what they are. I have other skin "issues" and perhaps mild eczema so I am also wondering if it is related. Thank you.
Try some powder to absorb the sweat. Apply calamine lotion at the site and take some oral <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>antihistamine</span> medications <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> your complaints. If the symptoms are still persistent, consult your dermatologist and get a proper clinical evaluation done. Let us know if you have any doubts and keep us posted on how you are doing. Good luck.
Hello, It can be an insect or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spider</span> bite. You can apply an anti-itch cream or lotion to the affected area. Oral antihistamine, such as Benadryl can also be used. You should take a comfortably cool bath and wear smooth-textured cotton clothing. Also apply calamine lotion. If the symptoms persist then get it evaluated from a dermatologist. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Hello, These look like insect or arthropod bite like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spider</span> bite. You can take some OTC oral antihistamine medications like Benadryl or Claritin and see if it helps. for mild-moderate symptoms a weak steroid may be used (e.g. hydrocortisone as dermacort), whilst more severe cases require a higher-potency steroid (e.g. clobetasol propionate, fluocinonide).But they are available under prescription and should be taken only after consulting a dermatologist.
A <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spider</span> bite in a strange area? The whole thing is reacting like a bad <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spider</span> bite would... but I really have no idea. Taking acetaminophen and an antihistamine has helped out. Since taking it the bite or whatever weird lesion it is has lessened in size and started healing. Thanks, sorry if this is a weird question... I am just... very perplexed. It honestly doesn't look like any herpes photos I have seen but I can't help being worried. I posted this on the wrong board yesterday.

Keep the area clean and wear clothes washed in a few drops of chlorhexidine preferably and dried in the sun. The possibility of an insect bite cannot be ruled out. You could take oral <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>antihistamine</span> or antiallergic medications for the itching. Let us know about what your doctor advises. Regards.
On occasion, I get an itch feeling on the side of my calf a few inches below and to the side of my knee. I was working and sleeping out in the desert <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a a couple of weeks before this started happening and I'm suspecting that maybe got bitten by a spider but am really not sure. It itch's me so I have to rub & scratch it to relieve the itch sensation. I sometimes have used things like anti itch pen for mosquitoes bytes and other creams which work temporarily. I've only used them briefly.
Apply calamine lotion at the site and take some oral <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>antihistamine</span> medications like loratadine or cetrizine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> your complaints. You should wash all your linen and bed clothing once in an antibacterial solution and sun dry it.

Went to his vet, turned out to be a spider bite. He was given antibiotics, antihistamine & pain medication. We go back in 5-7 days to make sure it's all cleared up.
im thinking it may be a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spider</span> bite but not quite sure. i dont have the funds available at the moment since urgent care wants 50 bucks just to look at you. i figure i can get some 'online-advice'.. thank you for all input and i will be monitoring it for the next couple days and see what it does..
I actually have two questions. 1: I suffer from very dry skin. I have asked several MDs and they all tell me to use aquaphor or some type of petroleum jelly, like vaseline. I suffer from an underactive thyroid and have been told that the thyroid causes the dry skin problem. I am currently on medication and have the thyroid issue under control. The aquaphore and petroleum jellys don't work. They cause me to scratch more.
It feels like a burn and looks like a burn but I never burnt myself, and it's been there <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a week. I'm wondering if maybe it is a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spider</span> bite or something. I really don't know what to do about it, and it's not going away. It's pretty raised, oddly shaped, red, bumpy, burns, and hurts if I touch it. Please help me out. I really don't want to go to the doctor if I don't have to.
I am already taking an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>antihistamine</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> allergies and it is not responding to this and in fact, developed while on it. I have had contact dermatitis before and think that might be it but havent introduced anything new that I can think of. I am not prone to rashes, I had the contact dermatitis only once years ago from a seatbelt in a new car,lol. Could it maybe be a reaction to a spider bite? I am very uncomfortable and cannot get in to see the Dr. for almost two weeks from today. Any ideas?
Apply a medicated lip balm with a sunscreen to avoid damage due to the sun. You could take oral <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>antihistamine</span> medications <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a few days to control the itching and swelling. If your lesions still persist, it would be best to see a skin specialist for a confirmed diagnosis and to rule out any other cause of the spot. Are you allergic to any substances? What symptoms do you have other than the lip lesion? What is your age? Do you smoke?
I've heard suggestions that they could be <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spider</span> bites but I'm not sure. I haven't changed detergents <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> my cloths or anything recently, so I don't think it's an allergic reaction. Also I do not wear pants that are tight on me that might cause folliculitus, so I've been left pretty much stumped with these extremely itchy red bumps.
I've applied the ASAP again and it's peeling again. What could this be? I first thought it was a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spider</span> bite, but since this is recurring within 2 months time, not sure. Any ideas?
The other morning I woke up to what I thought was a single <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spider</span> bite on my arm. I didn't think much of it until the next morning when I woke up to one on my stomach, one on my foot, and three on my lower back. That freaked me out so I slept in my mom's room with her and yet again, in the morning, I had two more bites, side by side, on each arm. So a total of 4 more that morning. My mom however, had none.
