I was bitten by something last night while I was sleeping. When I woke up I tried to grab whatever it was so I could see what kind of insect it was but it started stinging or biting me. It burned like someone had put fire to my face. When I looked in the mirror the spot was red so I put some alcohol on it and some antibiotic ointment. When I woke up this morning the spot was still (and still is) burning. I also had 2 black marks at the sight along with two smaller ones. I am feeling nauseas and dizzy. I went to the emergency room but they were no help. Anybody have any idea what it was that bit me? The sight where I was bitten is now swollen and the eye right over the bite location is now burning also.
