Two of the bug bites right near one another on the top of my right foot have turned purple in the last day or so. I’m not terribly concerned about it, because the swelling has gone down and they aren’t nearly as painful or itchy as my other bites, but I got curious today and googled “bug bites turned purple” and OH. MY. GOD.
Evidently, brown recluse spider bites will turn purple at the edges as your flesh dies and rots off. I have now seen the most hideous, disgusting pictures of rotting flesh in the whole world, and since I’m completely neurotic and a bit of a hypochondriac with a terribly vivid imagination, I’m now slightly worried that I got bitten by a brown recluse spider and my foot is going to rot off.
That would suck.
