Ow! Something bit me!

I woke up sunday morning scratching at my arm, which upon examination had a swollen spot with some marks on it that seemed like some kind of insect bite. I'm not sure from what, or how it would have gotten into the apartment, but whatever it was it seems to have bitten me a couple times before it got bored.

That morning it was itchy, but i didn't notice it much for the rest of the day. But in the evening it started getting kinda sore. Today it doesn't hurt, but whether because of the scratching or an infection or both one of the bites has expanded into a three or so millimeter across sore that keeps oozing plasma. Yuck!

I had a bunch last week. Each was at least three millimeters. The big one was a few inches across on my knee. The big one itched and was sore.

I'm guessing that it's a spider. Spiders get into apartments by crawling in from somewhere. Then they bite you and they go wheeee! and then they hide or get crushed by you when you roll over in your sleep.

You can use cool or cold tea bags and/or a paste of baking soda and water to help with some of the pain and itch of the bite. Antibiotic ointment and a bandaid can help keep the chance of infection down.
