Ardyth ~ Tucson — This afternoon I managed to get a 2 hour nap and got up around 4:30 pm EDT. I took this pic shortly after I got up. What I didn’t mention before with the original pic is this is the 5th similar bite I have gotten this summer. On the back of my left ankle area you can see a dark spot that remains from one of the bites I received about a month ago; however, while that bite got to about the size of a quarter, it never got as large as the current one on… Read more »

Good to hear you got a nap. I am concerned about you. I know you are smart about things but if this doesnt go away please go to a DR.

Thank you Ardy ♥ The other similar bites took less than 7 days to stop hurting/itching and then started fading in color. I promise that if this one gets worse, or doesn’t go away, I will go back to my Dr. Hah!! I never knew I had a freckle on the back of my right ankle giggle

Ardyth ~ Tucson — You wondered below if I could take a pic of my bite reaction. Since I still can’t get to sleep, I decided to try and succeeded at getting this pic of the back lower portion of my right leg by rolling up my pants leg and propping my foot on the dining room chair. I just iced the area and plan to do that more today.

Thank you Ardy ♥
Ouch!! Mine also has lots of tiny blisters but they’re not as raised as yours ( it’s hard to see them in my pic ). You’re correct that it’s a large area. If you make a circle with your fingers touching your thumb, the inflamed area exceeds the circle.

The sheetrock arrived Wednesday. The crew was here very early yesterday morning and got it all put up by the end of the day! The bathtub picture ( where we are storing lights and new ceiling fans ) was done in green sheetrock, it is more water resistant for a bathroom. Today they come and do the start the seam work in the sheetrock. PROGRESS !heart

Hi Jenn’
Thanks for the pictures. I guess i thought everything was already gone in these houses and ready to go,,,,,,,,,what a lot of work that has to be done before moving in.

It’s a regular wooden house, they just put the structure together then complete it on site. A prefab home or mobile home, comes complete already. It is a lot of work building a home, I’ve learned a lot watching as it has progressed.

Morning Ice! Sleepless night for me due to a painful/itchy/swollen reaction to an insect bite on the back of my lower right leg. I took a generic Claritin and used a hydrocortisone cream but did not get enough relief to be able to sleep more than about 1 hour and then had a nightmare! At 3:15 am EDT I gave up trying to get more sleep.

Hi Kathy.. Oh I am so sorry Kathy, hope it was not a tick bite with all the news about lyme and it has been front page news here with the increase in Lyme.
Hope you get some relief soon and catch up with your sleep most important. blowkiss

Thank you Ice blowkiss I never saw what type of insect it was nor did I feel a bite. The area simply started itching a little while I was outside 2 days ago and it has gradually increased in size and gotten painful. I am not running a fever so far.

My daughter had a spider bite when she was two. It swelled up and the next morning she had a fever. They can be pretty bad. We do not have poisonous spiders in Maine but this one was the worse spider bite I’ve seen before or since her bite.

My wife once upon a time picked up a rather large spider indoors, one`s I prefer to hit with a large book but she likes to let them loose but this one bit her and she had two pin prick holes in her finger that had spots of blood needless to day she no longer picks them up. Luckily she had no swelling on her finger but it was quite painful. bigsmile bigsmile

It is awful when most of a season is bad weather. We came home from FL on April 24th and it seemed it showered 4 out of every 5 days for the next two months. It was much colder than usual. So thankful the end of June summer arrived in full force. We really went from winter to summer with no spring. eyeroll You really need some warmth and sunshine and I hope it’s soon.
