Get examined: It is impossible to diagnose without a definitive exam or photo documentation: not all white blister/red ring lesions are spider bites-you must be examined.

Lesion: Although you think it is a spider bite and on your hand it could be. Have you been in a basement, barn or some place dark when you could have been bit? One of the most common problems to be mistaken as a bite is a Staph abscess. Make sure you see your doctor.

A 38-year-old member asked:

Is facial swelling normal in pregnancy?

1 doctor answer1 doctor weighed in
Dr. Chukwuma Onyeije

No: Swelling of any type is caused by body fluid in places where it normally should not be. When you are pregnant your body produces more blood cells and more serum (the fluid that blood cells float in). This increase in cells and fluid are important for the developing baby, but it can also lead to swelling during pregnancy. Extra fluid accounts for about a quarter of the weight that a woman gains.

The loose skin : Should be trimmed away, the blister cleaned, then dressed with an antibiotic ointment and then covered with a band aid. It will take a few days, but the soreness will gradually decrease as the skin under the blister dries out and toughens up.
