Abscess: You did not send a picture with this but what you describe sounds like a small abscess which is a part of the skin that has under it an infection. You can apply warm compresses to it to try to make it open and drain but you really should see a physician and get a culture from what is inside if possible and be started on antibiotics. I would go to an urgent care or your own MD ASAP. ...Read more

Putting in a cool compress over spider bite for 10 minutes every hour while awake will help. Antibiotic ointment. if redness is getting larger or she has a fever, take her to ER or appt.Dr's office. ...Read more

If he gets the response then u have to choose between your BF or Pet ;) ...Read more
