I think I got bit by a spider last night my leg was painful and there was a red hard lump. Today it's still very tender and the redness has grown?
SPIDER BITE: All spiders contain venom... it is how they kill their prey. Most venom is histo-toxic... It inflames & at times destroys tissue. The redness represents the venom 'leeching' out from bite site. Sometimes the redness will become black in the middle & 'follow' the redness. The size of spider bite wounds should be VERY CLOSELY monitored to make sure they are healing properly! ...Read more
Hard purple lup on knee with redness around. Have had leg pain for a month the lump just showed up. Is this dvt?
Superficial: I sounds like a superficial vein with pain, called thrombophlebitis which is an inflammation of the vein. Other possibilities include an infected cyst or hair follicle, or insect bite. It is hard to say without seeing the lesion. Best course of action. Apply a warm compress for about 5 minutes, multiple times and take an anti inflammatory for pain. See a Doctor as soon as possible ...Read more

I have just a large red lump on my leg, hard to the touch and very itchy, and very large. Swollen and red. Should I be alarmed?
Have it seen: It is difficult to diagnose issues with the skin without having them seen by a physician. As a "very large, swollen, red lump" is not normal on the leg it would be a good idea to have a physician look at it. The fact that the area itches would make me suspicious of possibly it starting out as an insect bite; however, a secondary infection requiring antibiotics is certainly possible. ...Read more
