Insect bite question

#1
About two months ago I got bitten by something whilst on ex. Whatever it was bit me three times in an area about the size of a ten pence piece. To start with it looked like three mozzie bites, after a week or so, it looked more like a red circle. This (rough) circle has now grown to around 2-2 1/2 inches in diameter, and the skin in the centre looks slightly bruised.

I've been bitten loads of times before, but have never seen any like this, nor has anyone I know.

Any ideas on what the Hell it is?

a mate of mine was bitten, sounds very similar IIRC it was some sort of parasite, required all sorts of meds, get down to the MO pronto.

I had the same thing - Lime disease.

GET IT TREATED!

Arthritis, neurology problems, character changing, death (in that order!)

I nearly lost a leg last year to Wasps stings (dirty little feckers)after blood poisoning started setting in. After two months it doesnt sound like septicaemia but Im not a doctor so take the previously given advice and get it sorted.

i got blood poisoning a couple of years ago. stupidly waited till i could see every blood vessel in my right leg before realising i probably ought to go see the doctor.

at which point they amputated it.

mind you, we were tough in them days. i was back at work that afternoon.

Thanks guys, that was an excellent piece of diagnosis, I am now the proud owner of a trailer load of penicillin.
