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

My daughter had something that looked like that when she was small. Hers was actually 5 or 6 spots like that. One minute she was fine and the next she was screaming like someone was killing her. We stripped her socks off (as we had just put them on and she was fine before we put them on) and found the "bites" We think it was a spider of some sort. The socks were the ones that have the threads on the inside because of the picture on the outside. KWIM? That was the last time we used any socks that were like that. Oh and she was just fine after we got the sock off and she cuddled with mama a minute or two.

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

My older boy is covered in those sort of spots right now, he cries if he touches them... they are hard and red/pink with a tight whitish spot on top. he isn't itching at them and no fever, now swelling... I have no idea what they could be. I personally have no allergies to bite... I've even been bitten by a widow and had mild flu like symptoms, that was all... but there is a little yellow-green spider out there that I have a huge reaction to. The bite starts swelling til it's between the size of an apple and a grapefruit, it's hard and hot and if near a joint, I can't use that joint well. It aches and itches and last for a couple of weeks.
my sister in law has a recluse scar on her leg... I agree with the PP, if it's a bad bite, one that needs medical attention then the signs would have been showing up already. I hope the poor baby feels better soon1

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

I had a bite like that as a kid, and even though it wasn't a brown recluse that bit me, it still got infected and had to be treated. If it hasn't gone away yet, I'd make an appt. to have it looked at. My bites had to be treated with antibiotics and hydrogen peroxide; so maybe if DD's is already going away the HP would help heal it faster?

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

i think it would have the traditional bullseye by now if it was a recluse...i had a bite at 11. it was gross

it could be hand foot and mouth....check her mouth, her palms, etc. maybe her bottom too, i have seen kids get it there. but when my dd had it, she was fevery, and too sick to eat or drink, and was hospitalized. she screamed b/c her throat hurt. turns out her throat was full of ulcers. Awful.

good luck, mama

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

I know theres two spots there but that looks identical to chigger bites my son got a couple weeks ago. At first they were tiny spots, then they were little bitty blisters that eventually healed. HTH

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

Ok just got back from the dr and it is a bite. But at this point they are just watching it. I am keeping an eye to see if it gets red or hot ~ otherwise it should just go away in about 10 days

Thanks mamas for all the support!
