A Blister or a Bite in South East Texas?

Spider bite on foot?

Tell us where your bite is (arm, leg, nose, whatever)

Foot

Why I think it's a spider bite

It is a blister like looking spot. I don't remember getting bit. I live in south east Texas and have 80 acres and have been doing a lot of labor on the ranch, such as moving debris from the land. Clearing the land for the start of a building site for a home. A lot of walking around and 4 wheeling on the land.

What happened

I was rubbing on my foot from a recent injury to my foot(severe sprain and tendon damage) and felt the blister on my foot. I have not seen a doctor about it yet. However, I do have an appointment for a routine check up this week.

Advice

I was enjoy some time on my ranch doing some labor and clearing for a building site for a home. There are many critters and insects in our area. It's the season for all including but not limited to the following:

  • scorpions
  • spiders
  • mosquitos
  • fire ants
  • flies
  • gnats
  • caterpillars
  • wasps and bees
  • ticks
  • fleas

Also, take in consideration my area of the USA I live in...south east Texas.
