Exclamation mosquito bite! (warning: disgusting pics)

so i got bitten on my leg on saturday night, and now it looks like this:



in the middle is a small spot with tiny little blisters and around it it's all red and the skin is hard.. i mean, wtf do i put on it??

look at the size:



i put arnica on it to reduce the swelling and that worked for a day, but it's so bad now.. even arnica doesn't work..

any suggestions?

we don't have spiders that bite over here! unless it came in a banana crate or something.. what would you do with a spider bite?

it's not a wasp or a bee sting either.. that really hurts when it's just happened and this only itched at first!

Looks like a spider bite to me, too. Hate to tell you this, but you need to see a doctor.
If it is a skeeter bite, you've had an allergic reaction and should see a doctor for sure!

GO SEE YOUR DOCTOR NOW !!

I thought I had an ant bite last year on my hip....2 days later I had an open wound the size of a half dollar and a drain tube to release the poison.

Seriously, it gets worse by the hour....don't wait (i have a nasty scar to prove it)

Heh. That looks like the start of this:



It started as a blister, got infected and they had to scalpel out a chunk of my elbow to make it go away.

Pretty ain't it?

You're welcome!

shit nyc! i don't think i want that!!

lvlycwgirl: yeah it feels hot.. hot and itchy!

i just called the doc..
doc says it's unlikely i was bitten or stung by any other insect than a mosquito or a red forest ant as all the other insect bites or stings hurt a lot more.

i can go and pick up antihistamin tablets at the night pharmacy, swab the blisters with alcohol and cool the whole thing.. she said if the antihistamin works i don't have to come by.

if the thing stays the same size i have to show it in the morning, and if i start feeling weird or feverish i should call immediately..

off to the pharmacy then! latersss...

It's not a mosquito bite !! Is it hard around the outside edges?

Remember, mine didn't hurt that bad either. I thought it was an ant.

Let us know!
