My son has a hard blistering bump on his leg. I'm sure it's a bug bite. I'm worried about brown recluse spiders. Should I take him to a dr or wait?

I have a small, dark red area on my leg. It has several white blister-type bumps in the red area, but it does not itch or hurt. What is it?
It may be a small area of infection, either from WTFK* or maybe on top of a small insect bite (the eternal and honorable "spider bite")or from some other area of small 'trauma' (abrasion).In any event, try a topical antibacterial cream or ointment for a few days (and keep it covered loosely)and if not improved by then, have it looked at by a doctor or other health care provider

I have a small cluster of tiny bumps that look like water blisters on the top of my right foot that itch really bad what could it be?
Poison oak or ivy?: That's a tough one! Depending on where you live and what you have been doing, any number of causes might explain your symptoms. If you live in the US, and have been outdoors lately, exposure to poison oak or ivy often results in the kind of rash you're describing. Maybe try a topical hydrocortisone cream and see if that helps. If not, then a more detailed history and exam are in order. Good luck! ...Read more

I have a yellowish blister looking bump on the side of my foot. It feels as though a small rock or something might be in it. The skin has grown over it?
Foreign body: Your description suggests that this lesion might be a foreign body such as a splinter.

I have tiny itchy bumps on the bottom of my foot. They are all around what used to be a blister and is now a hole in my foot with weird looking skin?
I'm not sure what: Exactly you mean by a whole in the foot...are we speaking of a bonafide ulcer? If so you should see a foot doctor or dermatologist....if its just one of the blisters erupting it sounds more along the lines of a bullous Tinea pedis or athletes foot and a topical antifungal would be a good starting point. ...Read more

I have this red bump on my leg the size of a quarter and in the middle of it, is like a tiny bubble or blister in the form of a weird circle. Also, I was cleaning my closet and there was spiders that looked liked daddy long legs. So I don't know what?
Bite: "Daddy long leg" spiders don't bite like that, but in the same environment there could be other insects that do. The most concerning of the likely possibilities would be a brown recluse spider. I would be seen at an urgent care facility and followed closely for signs of necrosis and/ or infection. ...Read more

When I scratch my foot, blister-like-bumps are filled w/ blood when popped, is their any remedies to stop/soothe it without going to a derm.?
Yes...but: While "blood blisters" are common from trauma, & generally do not need specific treatment other than time, the way the question is asked concerns me. If every time you scratch or have minor trauma to your foot you get blood-filled bumps, you should be seen. I would be worried about a bleeding disorder. General wound care:soap/water/air/aloe can all help injured skin heal. Slow healing think diabetes. ...Read more

Blister on leg: Could be blister - irritation from clothes, or folliculitis infection of hair follicle, rarely herpes (hurts a lot and it usually crusts). Since burst can get infected can try OTC bacitracin 2 x a day wash with soap and water, cover with gauze (not a band aid it makes things worse) and tape, also destin may help as zinc is antibacterial. Use gloves, wash hands after, heck for herpes f/u w/MD ...Read more
