On Sunday I was at a park and didn't feel anything well later that day I noticed on my leg it looks like a tiny bug bite. On monday it was a little red and you could really notice the bite. Well Tuesday it was a little more red and the area was alittle bigger. And today it is really red and the area grew bigger. The opening hasn't changed and nothing is coming out of it. It is kind of painful but not to bad. Is it something I should worry about or is this a normal spider bite?

Have you tried taking an antihistamine? maybe it was a bug bite and you're allergic to whatever it is.

You don't need to go to the doctor for that. Put some hydrocortizone on it and give it time unless you are running a fever, having cold sweats, dizzy, nauseous or weak.

I would call the doctor and see what he or she says. It might need to be drained. On a side not I looked at the picture first and thought you got bit on the wrist. You have such skinny legs!......Can you hear the jealousy?? LOL Good luck and I hope it gets better.
