I know the pictures aren't very good but DD has had this bump on her temple for about a week. About 2 days ago she woke up with what looked like a scab off of the bump that was in her hair ... thoughts? should i get it looked at?

It looks like a spider bite to me. Is it getting better or worse?

That's my thought too.

Was there puss in it after the scab came off? It looks like a spider bite. Does it seem to be going away on it's own?

 It could be a spider bite. My oldest dd had one when she was younger right on her forehead and it was red and swelling. It turns out she had a local reaction to the bite and I ended up taking her to the ER to get checked out because it was on her head. It it gets red or swollen definitely get it checked, but if it just looks like its getting better, then no worries.

This might seem weird but try putting some white tooth paste on it, it will dry it out.

its some sort of bug bite! I would say spider but hard to tell. if it swells feels warm or gets really red take her in to get it checked out because it would be caused by infection. Good luck!

It looks like a spider bite. I would have it looked at if it has been there a week it has been there to long, in my opinion.

Just be carefull A girl at my work,her daughter had a bump on her leg and it didnt get any better, she also thought it was a Spider bite, or Chigger bite, But it turned out she had scratched her self and had some dirt under her finger nail and it turned into Merca.... (not sure how to spell it) not to scare you... But I would keep an eye on it.
