As well

But u have another problem

while watching transformers 3 at the theatre a bug bit me. Im not saying where because its embarrassing. But it stung. Its now swollen and there is a single black spot where the bite was. I didn't get to see what the bug was.

Can you drive yourself? Keep an eye on it and if it gets worse or painful then I'd go straight to the ER

Well legally no. I've done it before. If necessary I can do it. Getting drivers ed is exspensive. Its like 150 and I don't have a job. Because I don't have a license. But ill wake my dad up if it gets worse

If it is where i think it is. Don't mess around, go to an urgent care or something.

If it looks bad or feels worse. GO.

I still think you should get it checked out. It's one thing to have a bite on your arm, but when its down south, you don't want to mess around. Or at least I wouldn't :lol:

I don't want to either. But now its starting to go down. So maybe it was just a bad reaction to whatever it was. I have to go to the doctors tomorrow again for the results of my xray for my shoulder. Hopefully everything is okay there. But right now as it stands I'm looking at not being able to be an athlete :/ ill ask my doctor then if its still bothering me

Is it on your testes, sounds like a possible Black Widow spider bite. Interesting statistic is that most Black Widow bites occur in the testes/groin area, they like dark, warm smelly places.

Usually happens to backpackers when they are squatting over the cathole they just dug, and some happy little spider hops from the nearest bush up there.

Some of those spider venoms can literally kill the flesh (necrosis) which may explain the black area...better have it looked at as there are reports of the necrosis progressing far beyond the original bite point.

Ya that happened to a few friends of mine. One lost the back of his ankle and the bite was on his arm! The other got bit on the hand and his knee swelled up like a softball. Both were Brown Recluse bites but Black Widow's can do the same. Probably look really weird with all or part of your sack missing :lol: or worse, your ....gulp....you know

Honestly, sounds like a tick bite. It happened to me not too long ago. A damn tick on my.. (well it rhymes with tick). It got red with a little dark dot in the middle. It itched too. Took a couple of weeks to totally go away. It was mentally disturbing but no long term ill effects. Tick bites are extremely common in that area. Like others have said though, if it gets bad, go have it checked out.
