3 Bumps

I woke up yesterday with HUGE bug bite looking things! (pic included) what could this be??

I went to a friend's house a few nights ago and woke up the next day with this huge red bumps going down my arm....they were like giant bug bites and when anything touched them it felt like pins and needles going through my entire arm! Any ideas what this could be? I'm gonna go to the doc if they don't go away soon.

  • It looks like bed bug bites to me. Try some Benadryl, it can't hurt and just might help.

  • If it is bedbugs you may have carried them home with you too.

  • To me it looks like spider bites, and you may need antibiotics. After just one day, with a reaction like that...yeah a spider. Circle the bites with a pen to see how fast the red is spreading. Dont pop anything if it comes to the surface. Unfortunately our household has had 4 family members attacked by spiders within the last year, all in the same time frame. The two kids, had major reactions. Good luck!

  • Bed bugs hate to say it but has nothing to do with cleanliness its a problem all over the country now. My apartment complex had them luckily it never spread to my apartment but i was a paranoid sleepless wreck for weeks until they got rid of it. This girl had the same exact bites you had.
