well the bites I believe maybe I might or possibly spider I'm not absolutely sure the puncture wounds is what's confusing me I'm not sure about the one on my stomach is there in a perfect square and it's like I don't remember anything biting me I don't recall you know knocking a bug off of me or anything like that so I can't I can't really think of what it might have been I have been on the I have been in the outdoors you know the past couple of days in the bites got there I would probably say all together or maybe two to three days ago and the swelling just started getting pretty bad and there's fever in them also and they that's what was concerning me the most

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..
