It feels worse than it looks and I don't want to be a baby; just wondered what I should do. It was been over 24 hours and not feeling better. (Well baking soda helped some but I can't keep it on it!) There is a little bit of blister and it is slightly swollen. Thanks!

I can't be sure it was a spider Randall; just can't think what else it could be. Went to doc today though and using antibiotic cream and antihistamine. Mine has what looks like 2 black dots too! Did yours get like a hard knot?
Yes it did become a firm bump, then began to deteriate. It certainly sounds like a spider bite. odid
Thanks RT; saw one today and he doesn't know for sure what it is either but using antibiotic cream 3x a day til it heals unless it gets worse.
Thanks Phyllis! I will go do that right now. Was hoping someone had a remedy for me!
I am using Benedryll and antibiotic creamed prescribed today; and doc said use some hydrocortisone but I didn't get that; but will tomorrow since it worked good for you. Mine is getting like a hard lump with blister on top but doesn't itch as bad .
Never heard of benadryl cream Rachel. I will look for that, thank you!
So you don't want to mess with it you think? I plan to try the hydro-cortisone tomorrow and see if that help with the irritation. I sure hope I don't have to have it cut. Will certainly be more careful of bugs from now one.
