  • Not sure what bit him but I do know that when my friend got stung by a scorpion repeatedly on her leg it became a hard red lump from the poison...make sure there to check his bed n clothes maybe a spider is hiding?...hope the lil guy is all right n watever it is go away (also I'm hispanic n my grandmother would rub alil clorox on stings from bees and scorpions it eases the pain and I think its suppose to draw out the poison I'm not sure)

  • Can you give a bit more info? Is he screaming in pain? Is it hot to touch? Has he been playing outside?

    My experience with insect bites and kids is that they are pretty traumatic for a few minutes but usually just stop hurting and go away on their own within half an hour or so. We always have cream in the cupboard to ease the sting of bug bites, though, as they can be very painful..
