OK so I got bitten by something yesterday on my ankle.I don't know what it was but oh boy was it itchy.I can only guess that some sort of blister formed today which has now popped...Anyway, this next part gets pretty disgusting...So the bite is now literally pouring fluid down my foot, which is quickly drying into my leg hairs. When I move my ankle it hurts as the dried fluid cracks and pulls on my hairs.At the end of the trail of dried fluid there is a hard, yellowish lump of the stuff where it's sorta pooled and dried.At the actual bite site, there is a lump of white "jelly" - which feels not uncommon to the glue that they use to hold plastic cards to paper etc. If I press a paper towel to the bite, I can see the fluid coming out of it soaking into the paper.The whole area feels very warm and sore.Advice? Thoughts? Anything?
Urgent: Insect bite (graphic description inside)
Sounds like a spider bite. I don't know if you are 'supposed' to do this, but the couple times I got bit by a spider, I cleaned out the area with rubbing alcohol. Then I put Neosporin and a bandage on it until a scab formed on it. I just did that to make sure I wouldn't itch it and get it infected. I am kind of an 'infection freak'.
