*** Insect Bite or Boil ***

I have a place in between my big toe and 2nd toe. Its flip flop weather and Ive been doing some moving and stuff. When I first noticed the pain I just thought it was the thong part of the flip flop just rubbing the skin raw. Its very possible it could be a insect bite, but theres no swelling. Ive been keeping an eye on it, because if it was to swell up, obviously I would seek medical attention. As of right now I cant wear flip flops obviously and I walk with a noticeable limp, but its not like excruciating pain or anything. A spider bite would swell wouldnt it? The spot is about as big as a pencil eraser, but it doesnt protrude out as far as an eraser. My 2nd toe nor my 1st is swollen. I can take a pic if needed, but I was just trying to figure out what it is so I can take the next step as far as medication or lancing if I have to. Thanks for any input!

[COLOR="Navy"]Do you have fire ants where you are living? They bite and are nasty. The bite will have a little like whie crust on it that if you lance it, it will weep. Best thing for that is athletes foot cream...[/COLOR]

Can you see the pics I posted?

Also yea I lanced it with a needle and it was weeping blood with couple specs of white here and there. Im in Oklahoma and Im sure Ive been where fire ants are, but I figured I would have already been bitten. Would I not feel gettin bit? Would it be comparable to like the feeling of a wasp sting?

Re: *** Insect Bite or Boil ***

[COLOR="Navy"]Not as bad as a bee sting, more like being stuck with a needle. I would soar your foot in epsom salts and warm water, then i would put hydrocortizone cream or antibiotic cream on it and cover it with a bandaid-a really cool one works best my GS tells me...but he is only 4.

No, the pics didn't post. Good luck[/COLOR]

I will soak it it warm salt water. Will Neosporin work?
