Quoting Crystal Marie S.:" Okay, I see it now. Did it look basically like a big pimple before?"


Kind of. I didn't notice it until my b**b was REALLY painful, and then I realized I had a very large hard, purple bump and when I grabbed my b**b to get a better look, it started oozing out shit, then blood, then purple stuff. By the time I got to the ER, the hole was about half that size. So, it's pretty much doubled. But, they did finish draining it.

Quoting Ҿɲȶ:" Thats what I was thinking. It could just be an abscess. I had one on my ass once, SUCKS!!! Have you had a fever??"


Nope. Nothing. And this wasn't there. It literally showed up while I was doing laundry. The way it looked when it happened, it looks exactly like pictures of brown recluse bites.

I had this SAME thing happen to me years ago. I thought it was a spider bite bit it was a severe staph infection, they lanced it, packed it, gave me meds and sent me on my way. Mine looked EXACTLY like this when I took the packing out. This is absolutely normal! Put a bandaid on it and let it heal. You don't need stitches.

If its a staff infection like I had you shouldn't have taken the packing out, no matter how much it drains. It can seal at the open of the wound...but then refill with puss and become reinfected. You need to be paid more attention to. You need to see a doctor, not an ER nurse who has a ton of shit to do.

Quoting P3RvYmCp3rv:" I'm scared for life now! Seriously though dad got bit by a br and it didnt' look that bad but the skin around it was very discolored. Did they give you antibioitics? "


Yeah, they have me on antibiotics. They gave me a shot in the ass then a script.

My niece had a staph infection and it looked EXACTLY like that. Do you have any tea tree oil, or could you get some?



That is the remnant of a boil.

I would be getting a second opinion (if I can spell tonight) because like the other ladies said that looks like Staph and you don't want to f**k around with that shit.

They told me to take it out after 48 hours. I don't think it is staff, I mean this literally came out of nowhere. I was fine, then several hours later my b**b was hard, purpple, painful.

I'm researching. I don't think that is a spider bite hun. I think its staff.
A brown recluse bite is more like a sore that spreads, but doesn't open up like that.

What? Brown recluse bits do open up, it eats the flesh and tissue.

:?
Hmm.
Mine didn't show up suddenly like that...but I did think it was a spider bite for a long time.



You just need to see your family doctor. They would be able to help you no matter what it is. An ER visit is too rushed, and too expensive!!
Sucks you already went but you should see your doctor.
They knew exactly what they were looking at once I pulled my ass out and showed em. It was terrible.
I was on a field trip in high school and ended up sitting on the thing for hours...ended up having a fever and finally telling my mother I thought I had a spider bite.
