people think they are spider bites and i even went to the doctor once when they were healing and she sat 5 feet away from me and told me thats what they looked like. i dont think spider bites are that common - to have 10 in 3 1/2 - 4 months? anyways - these spots are hard in the center and it feels bumpy - sometimes the bumps appear to be a pattern, sometimes they do not.

He explained something about how herpes virus is 'in' all of us from chicken pox days, and sometimes it breaks out with other infections like shingles or like this..<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> spider <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bite</span>. He did culture it, but he does thing that it is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> secondary infection too.. herpes virus. He said the topical bacitracin also is really not going to be effective, but she can use it if it 'feels' better keeping it moist cause the drying and cracking and breaking of the little blisters burns and hurts.
What you probably have are boils. They look almost exactly like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> recluse <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bite</span>. The difference is that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> boil will develop <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> white sack that surrounds the infected center portion of the red spot. Look real close when the spot starts to swell and ooze clear fluid, blood, or redish fluid. If the red swollen area is really tender and painful, and you can press a couple fingers on either side of the raw spot to try to force out some of the fluid.
Black widow - this spider an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hasan> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> red hourglass on the body. bites from this spider have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> 5 % fatality rate. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bite</span> seems normal, but within less than an hour generalized symptoms occur, including muscle cramps, painful muscle spasms, loss of sensation or tingling, headache, dizziness, vomiting, or trouble swallowing. Go to an ER or call 911 if you are bitten by a known black widow spider or you experience theses symptoms. Bring the spider with you.
It was itchy and I assumed it was some sort of bug <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bite</span>. It itched quite <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> bit and over the next few days I'm sure that I scratched the heck out of it. I didn't really pay much attention to it until maybe the 5th or 6th day I noticed an asymmetrical, blotchy, red, scaly (but did not slough) mark on my skin where the bite/bump used to be. I didn't scratch the mark, but around the mark, thinking that I must have caused some sort of irritation by scratching.

I'm sorry but there's no way someone here can tell you (even if you upload <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> pic) if that was <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> spider <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bite</span> or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> tick <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bite</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> rash caused by a tick is usually sort of like a bulls eye---- but NOT aLWaYS. I sincerely hope it wasn't a tick bite----- but at this point probably the only thing you can do is to wait (for days/weeks or months) and see if you develop any signs of illness---- like a flu (that isn't the flu), or 'strange' symptoms. Keep us posted if you do develop symptoms.
By Thursday the 10th there were some blisters appearing around the one on my chest (although no pain), and the one on my neck was very painful if touched, and I had noticed a third, much smaller, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bite</span> on my right arm - just next to the chest <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bite</span>. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bite</span> sites on each of the spots had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> yellowy-brown crater-looking effect, the way a mozzie bite will look if you scratch it too much and it scabs over (although I hadn't scratched any of the bites). By the 12th the blisters were quite pronounced.
Go to Google Images, and look up brown recluse spider. They look like very common field spiders, really, but if you still have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> spider body and a magnifying glass, they have a distinctive abdomen. BTW, we've had infestations of those spiders in my home - confirmed by the pest control guy - and not everyone reacts terribly. Try to recover the spider's remains, and I agree with Peek - call the ped.
Update this morning- He an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hasan> another welt on his back. Looks like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> mosqito <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bite</span> only its surounded by <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> red mark thats as large as my hand!!! Its like he is very alergic to mosqito bites or something. The other welts are starting to look like the other bite marks. a dot in the middle surrounded by a lighter color and than red. Ok I got him an appointment but I have to leave my house asap because its a 45 minute drive. I really hope they can tell me what this is!!!
night when I think I really first noticed an irritation on my arm - I was wearing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> sleeve and I noticed it felt itchy underneath. So - I'm hoping it's not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> spider <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bite</span>. I've been putting the antibiotic gel on it today and it is itchy like crazy. The middle bump looks like a raised sore now and appears ***** in the middle. Yikes. If it is not better in the morning - I think I will go to urgent care.
no it was a black insect online they say they dont bite.
a single red bump, about 3mm wide, comes and goes in the exact same spot on my left shoulder. Itches like mad, like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> mosquito <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bite</span>, but doesn't look exactly like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> mosquito bite. after a day or so it will go away and there is a faint red mark on my arm where it was. The faint red mark is always there but it's flat... when it's in the itchy stage, its a small red bump, it seems to fill up with fluid.
We know that the first manifestation of MS often occurs after something that an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hasan> stimulated the immune system, infection, delivery of a baby (where the immune system ramps back up after being suupressed some during the pregnancy) and vaccinations. So, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> venomous <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bite</span> or sting might set MS off - but would not be the actual cause. Does this make sense?
Well, it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hasan> been 3 days now. all I have done is taken more vit C and some prophen. swelling still there and blister did get a little larger. I have held off getting peran style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sonan>al medical help as I do not have insurance. also, it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hasan> not been real painful and , after 3 days, is not getting worse. I consider my immune system to be in pretty good shape so, hoping I can handle it. If it does get worse, I will have to at least maybe go to a drug store and have a pharmacist look at it.
He said that I don't have anything like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> black widow <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bite</span> or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> recluse <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bite</span>, but some spiders can still pack <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> punch. So far, that is what was done, the prognosis is yet to be determined as I need to see him again because the pain is worse and the numbness is still there. Will keep you informed.
From your description it looks like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> bruise. If you are not on any medications like anticoagulants, blood thinners or birth control pills then this could be due to clotting disorders, low platelet count, fragile spider veins, deep vein thrombus, deficiency of Vitamin B12, folic acid, or Vit K, a liver disease or certain cancers. It could also be due to pressure urticaria. If you are on medications then you need to discuss that with your doctor.
one at a time almost every day or every 2 or 3 days all summer...they look like spider or mosquito bites...cannot find any bugs.......searched my bed and under bed for signs of bedbugs, but no sign of any bugs.... Sometimes it happens while driving or walking outside of house...one on my thigh or back...always at a fatty point....bite this morning on belly with 2 dots like a spider did it...never have seen any bugs....any ideas?
But I can usually tell if it's a mosquito bite, or if it's a spider <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bite</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> spider <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bite</span> is just shaped differently. I'm not talking about <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> real big spider, just <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> regular spider. I know the difference. I was hoping you could tell me when you think this occurred. Because I could not possible get under most circumstances if I was walking through the grass. also, could have bitten through my socks. I wear socks in the area where the bite appeared. and I take socks off when I got home.
wow that does not look to comfy! it could be an allergic reaction to something that bit you like a spider or some other ugly little bug!. im assuming you have been bitten by mosquitoes before, my nephews are allergic to their bites and they will swell up like this! i remember once one of them had been bitten by a mosquito and it swelled up and started pussing up and it was quite nasty. i would suggest seeing a doctor right away if it is not showing any signs of recovery w/in a couple more days!
But a couple of days before the burning started, we were hiking in the mountains, and I noticed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> maroon/purple-looking tick or spider on my shirt. (Didn't look too closely) If that was indeed a tick, would the burning start a day or two later? I don't know, this seems way too intense and significant to be Lyme Diease - I'm a negative peran style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sonan>, and I'm always thinking MS...MS...MS... Thanks for you helpful posts, everyone!
hi guys, i'm kinda down and depressed and looking for some support...i'm actually paranoid that my hcv genotype 3 disease is progressing rapidly. i havent had a biopsy so i'm kinda paranoid about i've had the virus for less than 4 years. a lot of people on this forum have been very kind to offer me their advice but i still have to let it out.... so i hope they'll help me again as they ofetn have... i've been getting symptoms this year...
Over time, the lesions may take on something of a symmetrical appearance, but it will NEVER be a mirror-image, that is, one side perfectly reflecting the other. WH<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>T MS DOES aCT LIKE With the exception of Tranverse Myelitis, MS attacks and we have a batch of symptoms as our first attact. attacks are often "bilateral," meaning we have some symptoms on both sides. But it would be very unusual to have the same EXaCT symptoms on one side of the body as on the other.
wow.. it is like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> Stephen King novel. CNN just did <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> special this week on it.... wh<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t I can tell you is this... it is worse at night/can cause little bites or a cluster... hardly heal up then the next onslaught comes, that is because of the under the skin eggs. The bioengineering makes it not quite like scabies... doesn't get killed off like scabies, which aren't that hard... some people report it is associated with Lyme disease... some mutation.
im thinking it may be <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> spider <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bite</span> 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..
around christmas time i went home to Ft Lauderdale Flor= ida to see my family.I had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> really bad wh<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t i assumed wh<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t i thought was <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>= spider <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bite</span> on my right inner calf.I was purple and puss filled and it rea= lly hurt.So i finally got up the courage to lance it which i did and it pop= ped and it felt better so i bandaged it up and put some neosporin on it and= never gave it another thought.
It does not look like breast cancer, but there are some other serious things it could be. Go to the hospital immediately. It could be a tick bite which or a Brown Recluse Spider bite (you never feel either of these bite) and both could lead to very serious illness if you don't get help right away. You will most likely be put on an antibiotic and they will have to test you for whatever it is. Never wait when there is a possibility that you can come to harm. Tell you parents right away. GO!
