Question: I have two bites one on my stomach and one on my side the one on my stomach has 4 puncture holes in a square position and it is leaving a very hard swollen spot about maybe 5 cm in diameter from the bite itself and on my side there's probably two puncture wounds inside the bite itself and it's probably got a 3 cm in diameter swollen red spot around it can you possibly tell me what that might be or can I take a picture and send it to

Brief Answer:
Looks like spider bites

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome back..
Yes spider bite is a strong possibility..

Please do these things..

1. Start on oral antibiotics..
Preferably, AmoxClav drug based on your weight..

2. Apply Mupirocin ointment locally on the bite area...

3. Do not panic.. 3 days old bites won't cause major issues..

4. Please, take pain killers as per your requirement..

Take care..

Hope this helps you..

let me ask you this I was under the impression that a spider would only typically bite you once is it possible for two different spiders to have bit me in the exact same area to make a perfect square

Brief Answer:
No, don't worry about the shape..

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome back..

Let me tell you that shape is not the thing to be worried about.

And there are few spiders, which bite multiple times.

Hence do not worry, let's concentrate on the treatment aspect..
Take care..
