Wth is this? (mildly gross pic..maybe) *it's not ringworm*

I'm not sure when I got this but I felt it yesterday evening. Yesterday it was just a small red bump, like a mosquito bite. Now it's the small red bump with a bigger red circle around it. The bigger red circle feels kind of hard. :/ The pic isn't great because it's with my webcam. It's on my inner, upper arm. Boil? Cyst? MRSA? Spider bite? Anyone have any opinions?

Quoting HerLadyGrey:

Spider bite?

That's kind of what I thought but Idk when I would have gotten bitten. I would think that if I had been bitten while I slept I would have felt it before yesterday evening??

I really freaking hope it's not MRSA. :/

there's a spider whose name I can't remember that gives a bit that looks like a bullseye and it can be deadly--googling now, you should too, and maybe see a doctor!

could be recluse spider--if you google bullseye bite Lyme disease comes up too so I would get this checked.

Really? I don't really think it looks like a bullseye. There's no white circle in between red circles.

Spider bite most likely. Cortisone should clear it up

 It does look like a bite of some kind. Have you tried Hydrocortizone cream or Benadryl or both for that matter? Is it warm to touch?
