Hope it turns out ok George. Does it look anything like when I got bit by a Black Widow? I didn't go to the doc, and it completely healed in about 2 weeks. But with it being Erica, I advise a doctor visit too. Here's my bite after a couple days.

Still have a scar from the little brown bugger that bit me. Took a long time to heal, but this sounds worse.
Please let Erica know we're pulling for her and all will be well soon. With you posting a few days ago about that Kentucky Assinin Bug, I wonder what else from down south has migrated up there?

Just a side note, is she allergic to bee stings? With as dry as it's been this summer, the venom could be pretty potent. Even if she isn't allergic now, best to have some OTC benedryl handy from now on.

Like all the others get it looked at. When our son was about 8 or 10 he was playing ball with some friends and layed his glove down in the dugout. When he put it back on he felt a sting. He went to school the next day and by 10 he had red streaks going up his arm. He stay in the hospital for 3 day's. Nothing to mess with.

We went to the doctor and they feel that she will be alright. The doc couldn't say what it was that got a hold of her. The doc said that it could be a bug bit that made a blood vessel pop or it could be a spider bite. The wife also got poison ivy so they put her on prednisone for a double dose to help with the bite and the poison.

Glad she's going to be alright. Sounds like it's still a good thing you went in with the Psn Ivy.

Normally she wouldn't have went to the doc for the poison ivy except she started getting it on her eyelid so it is a good thing we went.

I wanted to thank everyone for the well wishes.

George, You tell Erica I'm glad she is going to be OK :thumbs: and I'm glad she got treated for poison ivy. That stuff can get into some really bad places. :(
