Ok if you could help me that would be awesome. My 2 yr old brother has a massive bug bite on his arm. This bug bite is about 2 inches in diameter and has a ring around it. It looks like a regular bug bite that is over sized and is like two parts. We lived in mn if that helps? We are just wondering what this could be. if you have any ideas please let me know. And he also has a eye that he is itching today, which is blood shot. That could just be allergies, because i have severe allergies, or it could possible be the start of pink eye. But if you have anything on the bug bite that would be great.
have his doctor check it out. it does not sound like a simple bug bite to me.
go see a doctor
if it has a ring around it, it is probably ringworm
it is ringowrom go to the doctor he should give you something for it
It might not even be a bug bite. I wrestle and it sounds like ringworm.
The ring is commonly symptomatic of a tick bite, and sometimes a precursor of Lyme disease.
You don't say where you live, or if deer ticks are common there, but I suggest having a doctor check it immediately. If it IS Lyme disease, the sooner treatment is started, the better the prognosis.
Go to the Dr. The first thing that comes to mind on both these issues are possibly ring worm & conjuntiveitis. Not worth chanceing. There are medical sites where the answers you get will be more accurate than a Yahoo chat line. But having worked in the medical field I know that this needs to be examined for an accurate diagnosis. If you don't have a Primary Care Dr., then just go to the Emergency Room. If money is an issue, let the Dr know that up front. Most hospitals have workers that help you get medical financial aid. Just don't let this go. You'd feel horrible if something bad happened to your baby brother because you didn't do anything. Best wishes.
first off if its itching REALLY bad and looks all flaky and really red then thats a ring worm
But you have to take in consideration that hes two little kids and babies are alot more sensitive then older kids.
I wouldnt worry about it too much it just sounds like a bite too me, but if it get worse i would go to the doctor ..
Good Luck :D
I had one last year that sounds like this--it was like a bruise, it was so sore. Could be a spider bite, I'd go to the pediatrician first & looks for signs of a reaction. Spider bites can be dangerous, especially in young children & seniors. Don't take a chance, it's worth the $ to go to the doctor for things like this!
NO,RINGWORM IS JUST A RING, NO BITE IN THE MIDDLE. I JUST WENT THROUGH THIS WITH MY SON,SOME SMALL CHILDREN ARE EXTREMELY SENSITIVE TO INSECT BITES AND GET MUCH LARGER THAN THEY WOULD ON AN ADULT. THE RED RING AROUND IT COULD MEAN ITS INFECTED. IF THE TOP OF THE BITE HAS A "HEAD" ON IT, LIKE A PIMPLE, GENTLY SQUEEZE IT TO SEE IF YOU CAN GET ANYTHING OUT OF IT. IT MIGHT OOZE SOME CLEAR FLUID AND THAT IS OK. IF THE FLUID IS THICK, AND ANY COLOR BUT CLEAR I WOULD TAKE HIM TO THE DOCTOR FOR AN ANTIBIOTIC, IF THE BITE STARTS TURNING BLACK,OR LOOKS SUNKEN IN I WOULD TAKE HIM TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM, AS IT COULD BE A BROWN RECLUSE BITE. IN THE MEAN TIME RUB SOME TRIPLE ANTIBIOTIC OINTMENT ON IT(A AND D OINTMENT) AND WHEN YOU GIVE HIM A BATH USE AN ANTIBACTERIAL SCRUB ON IT, THE REDNESS SHOULD START TO DISIPATE IN A FEW DAYS. HOPE THIS HELPED. MUCH LUCK.
