Posted on Thu, 2 Jun 2016 in General Health
Question: No allergies that are known. the bit happened the day after Easter. started off as just a different color path of skin. went to the emergency room and they said if it gets red or bigger to come in. it's been red and pretty big. I'm thinking a spider bit. can u help me? the skin started to be tender two days ago.

Brief Answer:
Not a spider bite.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
I have seen the image attached. The area of skin is irregular and aggressive looking. This is not just a spider bite. You need to attend an ER as soon as possible. Proper investigations are needed to find the cause. You can consult a dermatologist for proper treatment.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
