This is my husbands friend and his son has one also (his son is 15 ys). they got these bites like 3 days ago, and today he just pulled out this thing that is about 1/4 inch long. what is this bite? i already know they should go to the dr. and he said they are getting an urgent care appt now... but we are super curious and kinda freaked out...

this is what came out of it... he said he pulled it out in the shower because it was sticking out of the bite. he said it looks like a leg..

Ok, Sorry ladies, my babies are sick and this is the first chance I got to sit down! DH's friend went to the dr's and that dr just gave him a cream (perscription hyrocortison) WTF?! I told him to look up the bot fly, because thats what it looks like to me... and my husband is going to look at it under a microscope at work (biology teacher). I dont want him to touch the thing, but the dr didnt do much for him.

I also told my dh that this is an inadequate update. I will keep you posted.

Thank you!

Is it maybe a sting and not a bite? Or could it be a plant with some type of thorn that they rubbed against... I'm not sure.
