Today, I got a mosquito bite on my wrist. Maybe I'm paranoid, but I am pretty sure mosquito bites are not supposed to start crawling up to your armpit while swelling. FML
Severus_Snape_ tells us more :
Wow, this is the first time one of my FMLs have been accepted! I googled whatever was happening on my arm, and I think 26 may or may not be right. According to the internet, if should go away in a few days, and it was a spider bite. But ever since I was a kid, I've always attracted some weird bug bites, but this has never happened to me before. Unfortunately, I am the type of person that will twist my wrist and still just say that I'm fine. Like that time where I threw up twice when I was 11 years old and still insisted that I was well enough to go to school, only to be sent back home when I threw up again. I applied some type of cream thing on the bite, and it has gotten better. It'll probably go away in a few days. Hopefully.

How does it sound like a tick? Ticks burrow their teeth in and hold on for dear life, the one thing they DON'T do is crawl around. This sounds like some kind of terrifying tropical parasite..

@18 I don't understand why it's been thumbed UP. That shitty situation joke gets buried in down facing thumbs but these jokes rarely go sub zero, despite being equally as bad and repetitive.

I agree. It sounds like it might be a case of cutaneous larva migrants (an infection caused by a hookworm). These parasites may be found in the intestines of dogs, cats, and other animals and are spread through through skin contact with droppings on the ground or other surfaces. I highly recommend that you see a doctor soon. Also, wear shoes at all times when outdoors. If you have a pet, you may want to take them to a vet to get them de-wormed.

This isn't a probably or a should or a maybe


If it's moved like that in less than a day and your doctor can't see you, GO TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM!
