Allergic reaction

I noticed at work yesterday I had a big itchy bump on my upper thigh. I just assumed it was a mosquito bite and didn't pay much attention to it.

When I got home last night the bumb was about the size of a quarter and it is a thin purple bruise all the way around it. It's tender to the touch. I put some cream on it and left it one.
This morning the bumb the size of a silver dollar and the bruse hasn't changed. It still hurts. *I tried to upload a pic but it won't work. It gets to the very end and it just sits there. I let it sit for 10 min and it never uploaded.*

I've never had a reaction like this before. Would you go to the doctor? Or what would you put on it?

One of the members here has a recurring staph infection.

I'd get it looked at.

That sound like a spider bite.

I agree sounds like a spider bite. If it doesn't get better I would have a doctor look at it.

Bleh. I took a magnifying glass and a flash light and looked it all really close last night to find bite marks and couldn't see anything. My first thought was spider bite too. There's one kind of spider I'm allergic too. I got a big hole in my leg. But we never found out what it was

Quoting -JC-: That sound like a spider bite.

I would go get that checked out. The bruising is not a good sign. :(
