I have gotten four bites exactly the same, one 3 months ago, one a month and a half ago, one 2 weeks ago, and one 5 days ago.

They start out looking like a tiny, generic bug bite, but no itch. No discomfort at all, unless touched, in which case I experience a mild shot of pain. It then grows in a day or two, to a moderate size.
And I notice it has an intendtation, making it appear, at lack of a better description, a nipple. I learned in attempts to drain it by poking it with a push pin, that it's a hole straight down the bite. If I poke something into it, I feel no pain at all and it goes in with no struggle. (don't worry, I cleaned both the bite before, and after, aswell as the push pin, accessivly). An interesting fact is that in it bigger state, even lightly touching it gives me extreme, unbearable pain! I could easier leave my finger in the a lighter flame then keep my finger on one of these bites. Poke it anywhere wilse wit hthe needle hurts even worse...But nothing come out of it. None of the bites have 100% gone away, but two are exactly like freckles now, and one is like more of a displaced pimple. The other is at its full potential.

I have been washing my two remaining ones throuhly and hourly treating them with hydrogen paroxide. I'll admit t o bad habit of always picing at all of them. I apoligise for any grammerical errors, mispelling, or typos..Since I am in a position in which I am having to type this at 5:14 am, and for a bizzare reason or other, spellcheck is not running on my browser.

Thank you for your time

They are Brown Recluse Spider bites. The hole is from the poison which kills the tissue from the inside out. ALWAYS get them checked but most doctors don't even know what they are. My family has dealt with these often as we live in GA and are often in the woods and outside. You need antibiotics. Look up Brown Recluse bites on google images and yours should look the same. Best of luck.
