Ooooze!!

I put a bandaid on the bite thing on my arm last night since it was still oozing. Of course since the bite is on the furry part of my arm removing it later is going to be rather painful =P

This morning it was actually oozing through the bandaid a little but it seems to have stopped and dried out by now. So now instead of picking at the bite(s) i now pick at the bandaid =P Rubbing at it, prying at the edges, pulling at the hairs stuck under it, etc. And when i'm not paying attention i keep getting weird sensations when i semi-subconsciously notice i've got this thing stuck to my arm. Half the time i think "why do i have a hair band around my wrist?" which results in me absentmindedly trying to move it and failing, and the other half of the time i think "how did my bracelet get so far up my arm? I should slide it down..." which results in me absentmindedly trying to move it and failing, despite the fact that it's entirely the wrong arm for that.

You should take a picture. It could be something funky that you may need to get looked at by a doctor.

Er, if it's still around in a couple days i suppose. There's really nothing at the moment to indicate that it's anything more than a normal scratched-at insect bite.

I've never had insect bites ooze, and I'm a mosquito magnet.

"Spider bites" aren't always what they seem. Just sayin.

It's not a tumah!

Er, i mean, it's not flesh eating bacteria! At least i presume that's what the link is about or something like it, i see the little blurbs but have no idea how to get to the actual articles.

Anyways, if it manages to get bigger _without_ me scratching at it more i'll get concerned, until then, eh. I'm pretty sure i just managed to scratch away enough of the skin for the blood plasma to leak out but not enough for any significant number of blood cells to get out and clot up. It's certainly not the first time i've managed to do something like that.

To read the articles, as opposed to the abstracts, you generally have to have a subscriber ID or be accessing from a library that subscribes.

Keep an eye on it.
