My dad has what loos like a bite... adult content

on his ankle. it is swollen and has some pus coming out. He says it is hard to the touch and gives him some slight shooting pain. I know if it lasts he should go see a dr. but what might he be able to do in the meantime? I was thinking a warm compress to draw out the puss. Any ideas?

  • He might have been bitten by a brown recluse spider. He should seek medical attention.

  • My MIL had something similar happen. She treated it herself and ended up in the hospital. You best make him go in to the doctor now.

  • a warm compress might help but, it sounds like it is Infected- he needs to go to the doctor before it gets alot worse- if he doesn't go to the doctor then at the very least he should- Pour some Peroxide on it & use Neosporin - hope he feels better:)
