I woke up to an acheing, throbbing leg and looked down to see what looks like a bite mark?(Shown in picture) A ring around the outside and a sort of swelling in the middle. As the day went on it got worse and the middle started to turn into a blister .

Now on day 2 the redness has gone around but I do have a large blister. It isnt painful anymore, only slight twinges at time, Does anybody know the best way to go about healing this, or even what it is that could have bit me in the Uk at this time of year?

Many thanks

      It could  be a spider bite,but not knowing which area of country you live in it could be a tick bite. The bulls eye effect in the first photo is leaning that way. Ticks carry lyme desease among other deseases. that would require medicine to treat that I would in no way want to delay on getting. Lyme desease if treated quickly can be eraticated, but left  untreated it can be life altering. I would suggest having a doctor look at it to be safe! Agian it could be some other kind of insect bite in your area of country.
