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.

Dr. James Kufdakis answered:

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.

what does a mosquito bite look like and how is it different from spider bites?

Depends

Open-uri20121013-2691-1nylj0s
There are only 4 Genera of spiders in the US that are dangerous to humans but generally, there may be 1 or 2 small puncture wounds in the center of a red, warm, swollen, initially painful (sometimes) but then sometimes itchy area. There may occasionally be some numbness in the area also. However, black widow bites and brown recluse and hobos can be quite different. Mosquito bites-one puncture.

Many

Any insect toxin which will set up an inflammation can do this. See the following for information: << http://www.webmd.com/allergies/ss/slideshow-bad-bugs?ecd=wnl_aaa_060412

Spider bite. Do spider bites develop into wart like appearance? However such a wart is red. I woke up with this on my leg

See a doctor...

Spider bites can be worse than you would think. I have seen a number of them that have become secondarily infected. The appearance will vary with the individual AND the type of spider. Better see a doctor to be sure you don't develop any other complications.

I went camping and got a few bites, some of which blistered. 1 bite has a dark almost black center. 1 is leaking a yellow liquid. spider bites?

Possibly

Tick_bite
given what you are describing sounds like an infection and especially with the black center, do see your physician, let him examine you and possibly take a culture and treat you appropriately. also check that the black center is not a tick. best wishes
