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

Posted by   + Show Post

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?

They can sometimes just pop up on you. Bites are weird like that. Pimples 2.

Does it have heat? If its hard then it probably has puss building up.

When I was 15 I ended up with a spider bite similar to that on my butt. I ended up having to go to the hospital for surgery and was admitted for 5 days and hone a week and a half because I got staph in it. Swollen up as big as a grapefruit very hot and hard as a rock.

Quoting BraydensMama163:

My guess is spider bite.

Did you know most spiders get on you in your sleep. You will never know they were there until one bites

I did know that. :) I was leaning toward spider bite too, except I would think I would have noticed the bite before yesterday evening, kwim?

It's slightly warm and a little bit more firm than the rest of my arm. I'm going to keep an eye on it and if it gets bigger I'll go in. Thanks! :)

Fairly common. Two friends both had infestations, one in hermitage one in spring hill

Quoting SRUsarahSC:


this was in PA, they are common there. Ugly and kinda big.  I think seeing them scarred me for life.

Quoting SRUsarahSC:


we used to find them occasionally in the basement when I was growing up....horrifying stuff.  Probably why I was happy to move somewhere where there are no basements!


Quoting mich.el.le:


Quoting SRUsarahSC:

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

Holy FU&*! I should not have googled ''recluse spider bite pictures''. O.O




Lol. We have a basement but I've never seen a brown recluse. Not saying that it's not possible that they're there though. 




Ah. I know we have them down here in TN but Idk how common they are.

Oh gosh I hope that is not it just looked it up theirs were WAY worse and more angry looking. How long has it been happening??

Quoting Miss.MaryJane:

I did....and it looks like something called CCLE or something related to shit can't spell the word

I'm mobile or I'd link u.




Quoting 3lilladies81:

That stinks!! Have you tried googling it?? Put in every symptom you can think (including all over body) I sure hope you find out soon!!





Quoting Miss.MaryJane:

I put anti itch cream on it and it burned like fire :( then my skin on the area started burning like I had a sunburn.







Quoting 3lilladies81:

Hmmm well they would know better lol but seriously if you have some anti-fungal cream put some on it everyday for two weeks can't hurt to try









Quoting Miss.MaryJane:

Dr said it wasn't ringworm. She said the rheumy doc would know for sure. Ugh.











Quoting 3lilladies81:

Looks like ringworm to me and I would know I have one right now thanks to the stray cat I take care of.













Quoting Miss.MaryJane:

I have this all over my body and my dr has no clue what it is. She suspects it could be Lupus related.







It starts with a small red dot. Then the ring. Then it turns into a welt like bump.It dries and flakes. Now it itches like a mo fo. Round 2 of steroids here I go.







Good luck.
