Default Anyone verify if this is spider bite???(graphic)

Started about a week ago. Very tender at the 3 day mark. Less tender now and starting to blister looks like. Thought it was just an ingrown hair.

Doc called in a prescription for clindamycin. In route to pick it up. Gonna start it tonight and see how it does without draining. The doc seemed pretty confident that draining would speed up healingÖÖnot sure what to believe. He also suggested not to use topical antibiotic creams. Said it would stop it from drying snd draining properly.

Don't look like a spider bite. and like someone else posted especially one that is a week old. There's no puncture site. That looks more like an internal skin issue, but it sure looks infected. If it was me, I'd drain it and I would not cover it. Drying out is the best thing for it right now. If it is painful, just open it and clean it as best you can and leave it open to drain further. If it is not overly painful, I'd squeeze the crap out of it to see if it has a core or maybe that ingrown hair you referred to...

Go to Cracker Barrel, they have a section in their gift shop where they sell old Watkins products.

Pick up a can of Petro-Carbo Salve

Put in on a bandage and it will be good to go in a day or two.

Honestly doesnít look like a spider. Is it getting bigger? Circle with a marker if you donít go in so you can see if it grows.
