Staph or Spider Bite or WHAT?!
Saturday morning I woke up with a "zit" (well I thought it was), I slightly squeezed to realize it was not one (possibly a mosquito bite). Now its Friday and its gotten bigger (links to picture below). I have not went too the doctor because I thought it was either a Staph Infection or a minor Spider Bite. Reason why I didn't go too the doctor is because I had Bacitracin Zinc ointment which supposedly works very good against staph infection. I also took precaution and cleaned the area 5-7 times a day with mild soap and put lukewarm water on it too try to get the pus and blood out. This morning (the 13th), I woke up and went to the restroom then suddenly dark reddish blood came out of it and started pouring and stopped 5-10 seconds after.
Since then pus and small amounts of blood came out until the afternoon. I have not tried to squeeze the pus/blood out because I know it could get it worst. What should I do besides go to the Doctor? I have oral antibiotics and cream antibiotics and thought it would be fine. I'm afraid it is spider bite even though spider bites pus isn't supposed to be white. The Staph is coming off with treatment even though it has "popped". So I'm not sure what it is. I will be going to Doctor in the next couple of days (no insurance) so I have too get the money.
I have no sign of a fever, cramps, or anything. The bump is getting smaller from top too bottom, but getting wider now. It is almost touching my eye that is why Im afraid.
