Re: WTH is on my babys foot????

It does look like a bite not sure what, if it continues to get worse I would take her in, last weekend a friend of ours was walking with a limp and he said he went to the er and they had determined he'd been bit by a spider. I didnt' see the bite so I have no clue what they looked like. But just keep a close eye on her.

Re: WTH is on my babys foot????

How's she doing? It definitely looks like a fang bite. It may be from a harmless spider but, then again, it could be a spider like a brown recluse. Hopefully, your ped shed some light on it. So sorry

Re: WTH is on my babys foot????

I would take her in


BUT I think it's hand, foot, Mouth my kids have it right now
They have blisters on the hands, feet and in the mouth. The kids didn't eat here for a few day's.
Can you check and see it she has any sores in her mouth. My kids both had a canker sore on the tip of there tongue.
It lasted about 3 day's

Re: WTH is on my babys foot????

Looks like a spidey bite to me . Maybe just a house spider but it'd still make her feel like poop. I got bit by a house spider one time and i had to be on antibiotics just cuz it made me feel like i had the flu. It wasnt a brown recluse though that bit me.

Re: WTH is on my babys foot????

If it was a brown recluse, you should have already noticed significant worsening of the bite; a larger red area, and also, brown recluses bites actually cause the tissue to rot and then spread outwards...and it would DEFINITELY be sore and she would be a fussy baby. Calling and checking with a doc is always a good idea, but it's probably just a regular old spider bite. Poor baby..and mama!

Re: WTH is on my babys foot????

I've had brown recluse bites twice (go figure) and they didn't look anything like that. Also, like PP said, if it was a brown recluse bite her leg would have been very notably swollen by now.

If you're worried though, take her in. Its probably perfectly harmless, but it never hurts to be safe.

Re: WTH is on my babys foot????

if it was a spider i would be scared to death and move!! that would have to be a very big spider mouth to have those fang marks that far away!!! i agree, looks like HFM. We had it 2 weeks ago
