Hard Warm Bump on Leg?? *B*~ Mommy~ 1 child; Jackson, Missouri 7419 posts

My son has a hard warm bump on his upper thigh,



its almost like what they would get after having a shot where all ya gotta do is massage it, ...kinda like a pimple too, seems to bug him cuz he messes with it.



but he hasnt had any shots, we have been in the country, so maybe its a flea or mosqito bite.
He has two bites on the back of his other leg but they are not hard or warm.



any ideas what it may be?

Yeah, it sounds like a spider bite. Keep an eye on it, and see if the swelling goes down, but if it starts to necrotize in the middle, take him to the ER, because it could be a brown recluse bite. It could also be staph infection, so I'd get him checked out, just to be on the safe side...

could be a spider bite. if a red line starts to spread from the swelling take him to see a doc straight away. my daughter had a spider bite on her foot and it did this. i took her to the er and she had to be admitted and have antibiotics through a drip. scared the crap out of me. hope it goes away soon.

Thats exactly how my son and I react to mosquito bites. Keep an eye on it and if it seems to be getting worse I would let his dr. know. I hope it goes down soon. I know how painful they can get
