Julien had not seen a doctor at the time of submitting this photo. If the bite is growing rapidly, blocking the airway or oozing pus, it needs to be evaluated by a doctor right away. If you have a bite and you aren't sure whether it's dangerous, it's not a bad idea to have your doctor evaluate it for you.
In this case, Julien wasn't even complaining of itching.
Julien did mention there'd been a large rainstorm in D.C. right before this occurred, and he wondered how that would affect the behavior of bugs, spiders and vampires in the area.
