What the crap is this?


I'm having trouble identifying the type of bug that bit me when I was sleeping in a cabin on Friday night. Today it looks like this, and it burns a little. It doesnt feel itchy like a mosquito bite, but just achey and burning. When I find out what bug did it, they're getting a punch in the face.

It's not a bug, it's herpes. Or maybe crabs. On your leg. Maybe those are bugs, but the cool STD kind!

what the????? are you sure its from a bug? i hope you find the bug instead of punching it smash it into the wall.

the top ones look like they have a whitish "head" on them, resembling fire ant bites; however, those would eventually itch and I doubt you would've slept through them -- and they wouldn't have stopped with just a few bites in a small area like that.

The next possibility, based on experience and what little detail I can get from a 2d photo: spider(s).

DID YOU TAKE SOME BENADRYL TO CUT THE INFLAMAMTION??? i AM GUESSING IT IS SOME BACK WOODS SPIDER THAT FEASTED ON U??? FREEKIN IMBRED BUGS!!

Did you consider that maybe it's from Bed Bugs? I am not kidding.

Montgomery Q said...

Yeah, maybe. Spiders dont bite multiple times unless theyre trapped, like in a sleeping bag. So it could be a spider. One thing I know for a fact: it wasnt radioactive. I tried to climb a wall, but I didnt stick.

If it were bedbugs, wouldnt i have more bites in other places? and why is it lasting so long. Its getting worse! Now they're really red and inflamed.

Hey its MST night!

what about poison oak? I got that up the canyon once when I was playing in the creek. I ended up going to the dermotologist to finally get it to go away.

Ew. That's really freaky looking. My neighbor across the street got a spider bite on her shoulder and they had to do surgery and dig a hole out to make it better. I hope that doesn't happen to you.

It looks worse in person.

My last spider bite got progressively worse for several weeks until stabilizing, and it took a couple *months* to go away.
