a spider bite my on my vagina and its big and swollen and its hurts; the color seems to be like purple and black what should i do ?

Go to your doctor

Vulva
I recommend seeing a provider. You don't want a significant infection that would require surgery or prolonged antibiotics.

A day ago I found a large spider bite on my Breast, there's a decent sized hole in the middle, surrounded by a purple ring, is that normal?

No

Spider_bites
Need wound evaluation and culture of any fluid in hole. Could be MRSA and not a spider bite. Any Urgent Care can evaluate if you can't see your primary care provider in the next 24 hrs.

Spider bite on face? Was red, then dark purple, began hurting, and now my jaw underneath it is swollen&painful, & it's hard to breathe. What do I do?

Time to call 911

Insect_bite
Any person with a bug bite on the face and then trouble breathing should call 911 for the ambulance. The paramedics will have an Epipen and other medications to help counteract the possible allergic reaction. The doctor at the E.R. can evaluate to decide if it indeed is an allergic reaction.

My bf has a spider bite on the back of his leg thats about the size of a quarter it was red at first but now it is dark redish purple is this serious?

Possible necrosis

Spider_bites
This sounds like the bite may be becoming necrotic. A Brown Recluse bite frequently acts like this. Your bf should see a physician as he may need to have this area debrided and or may require antibiotics.

Suddenly extremely sore breasts and purple/red spider veins?

See a doctor

Sores
Breast pain can be due to a number of things: cysts, associated with menstrual cycle, superficial thrombophlebitis of veins (Mondor's Dz). If the pain is persisting, see a general surgeon, breast surgeon for evaluation.

Social drinker. i also noticed a slight purple vein in my leg, like a spider vein. Is this from drinking?

Usually not

Veins
Vein disease is an inherited disease but aggravated by prolonged sitting, standing, hormones, pregnancies, weight lifting, lack of exercise, obesity, etc. so our nutritional status, smoking, drinking etc can affect our overall health and circulation but doesn't directly cause spider veins in our legs.

Im 5 months pregnant and have a burning rash on back that looks similar to spider veins and blotchy purple legs, should i be concerned?

Varicose veins

Leg
You may want to discuss with your obstetrician to ensure that your bloodworm is in order. However it is most likely related to varicose veins. Wearing compression stockings (thigh high or higher) may help to improve the condition

Dr. Marie Trenga answered:

Found little spider veins on ear lobes. 52 yoa. No pattern not many but they are there, purple. maybe a few elsewhere. .. is this normal?

Spider veins

Skin
Spider veins are dilated blood vessels that can occur anywhere as you get older. Sun exposure and trauma such as pinching the skin can make them more common. Some families seem to get more of these and they are most noticeable in light-skined people.
