 This is a picture of me left upper breast.. sorry is covered  ;) and the other are two bites in the bend of my left elbow! I thought it was a mosquito and of course I scratched it, but it was odd as there was a rash all the way around the two holes of the bite area two also on my arm.. not as bad as the breast!
These holes itch like crazy! I was laying across me pond bridge when I think I got them, I did not notice until Later That I had them.. they started itching. The breast bite is not as raised but has a massive lump under the skin... and crusty top now with a surrounding rash...



This one is the elbow joint I had trouble  taking this one! It is not focussed well the bites are smaller bumps on the outer surface of skin unlike the one on me breast!

I will ask the doctor tomorrow or so when she calls, but in the mean time what do you think Bit me?? What about the rash? Anyone have any ideas?? LOL

I'd say they are mosquito bites since they like to hang around ponds. I hope it wasn't anything worse. Take care Karen and don't worry too much :)

I have never had a mosquito bite leave a rash around the bite area. That is what made me think it may not be a mosquito!.. I won't worry too much but do spiders that bite ever leave a rash it was a wooden bridge....
Thanks Stefan!

Mosquito bites can cause a rash sometimes. Also I don't think spider bites leave a raised mozzie-bite bump. Can you see any fang marks in the areas?

The one on my breast had two small holes, before I scratched it..Then it oozed a bit and crusted over.. Itches like crazy! Even now!
