My 12 year old daughter got what we thought was a infected hair after shaving her legs 2 days ago. As time has went on its got increasingly more sore. Even the bed sheet coming in contact with it hurts now. After she actually showed it to me tonight we cleaned it with peroxide and aftewards i'm worried it's a spider bite. Is there anything I can do? The 1st picture is before we cleaned it, 2nd is during and the 3rd is after.

I have 2 boys ages 5 and 7, the mother and I are no longer together and live in separate cities. My 7 year old son has constant itching for quite some time now and every time they come visit me for the weekend I get what looks like bug bites (around 8 or 9 of them) that resemble a spider bite by look and itch consistency. My ex has brought them to a doctor a few different times now and is told its not bug bites but that its hives or allergy rash, that doesnt explain why i only get bites when they come up. I think it may be a microscopic bug of some sort. It shows up as a bite resembling a spider bite, after rigorous itching it seems to stop itching for an hour or so and then starts back up, a couple days after the kids go back to their mothers i dont have anymore itching till the next time they come up and its only my 7 year old and not my 5 year old. Any ideas on what it may be or what I should do?
I had been bitten by a spider over a week ago. I m guessing it was a brown recluse spider since I was in West Virginia. The spider bite me multiple time in both ankles. I took benadryl and advil for a few days until the itching and swelling went down. Here it is 10 day later the bites have scabbed over, but now I am breaking out in little swollen red hives all over. Could this be cause by that same spider bite? I have been taking Benadryl all day and it doesn t seem to help.
about 7 years ago i woke up one morning with a nickel size red bump/welt on my right cheekbone. over the next few days it got redder, then scaley, was stinging, and so i went to my dr. he said it looked like a spider bite. it had 3 bite marks in a triangular pattern. he gave me a rx for a antibiotc and it gradually went away. since then, about every 18 months or so i get the same sized welt again in exactly the same spot and it takes 4-6 weeks for it to heal each time. i now have it again and dont know what to do.
