Hi I got a bug bite months ago then it turned into a small white bump by my wrist and its whitish but very small. I thought it could be a pimple so i tried popping it and it didnt work then i boiled a needle and was thinking maybe something would come out but nothing did and it just started bleeding. I really want to get rid of this what should i do? Crying or Very sad

Hi! This same thing happened to me on my neck. I believe it was a spider bite but this bump won't go away and it's been about 2 months now since the spider bit me. It's just a hard lump now. I tried similar things to the original poster but with no luck. What the heck is this thing and how do I get rid of it?

yeah that happened to me too. anyone know what this is? I think i got mine from a mosquito that I killed while in the process of biting me. usually when i kill bugs like these, a tiny bump appears and goes away, but i this one stayed and now it's rather noticeable (still like only a half cm in diameter). It doesn't itch

Same problem here. Mine is a little red, but didn't raise up until weeks after it happened. I messed with it a little and it really got big after that. It's between 1/16 - 1/8" big and doesn't hurt or itch. I've never seen nor heard of something like this before.

I was in northern Virginia right after sunset when it happened (sometimes these details can help figure out what type of bug it is).

It ended up being a wart for me... It's the only one I've had ever.

I had a spider bite on my wrist once and it turned into a white bump so I had the doctor look at it. Turns out my body had encapsulated the venom in a cyst. So, that's all it is; just our bodies protecting us from foreign bodies. Doc had to cut it out and sew it up. Came across this thread because it has happened again and I was looking to see if anyone else had this happen. Looks like I'm not alone. Good luck!
