spider bite?

I have had this bump on my stomach right above my belly button that at first was just a little sore but over maybe a three week period it has turned into two bumps and have grown and now have a black spot in the middle. They are very sore. I would say I got them around mid January. could this be a spider bite or does it sound like something else?

  • ehh you need to get it checked by a dr... while reading your question my first thought was a staph infection. does it look like its full of infection?

  • it does... in sure if i poked it with a needle something would come out... a symptom of staff infection wouldn't include bloating and lots of gas would it? what is a staff infection?

  • I wouldn't self-diagnose from the internet when it could be so many things. It might even be something as simple as a blackhead or an ingrown hair, but it's best for a doctor to examine it. JMO.
