Hi, about four days ago as I was getting into bed I suddenly noticed an itching about five inches below my belly button. I guess what you would call the pelvic area. It looked like a mosquito bite-red and inflamed and itching, but I hadn't been outside. The next day another bite showed up that was more red was about an inch and half from the first bite. The bites are still not gone and are just slightly itching-still pretty red. My boyfriend thought that they might be spider bites and now my roommate has scared me with something called MRSA. I'm praying that this will not be the case because from what I have researched this is a scary thing. I'm 23 year old female and work in a residential treatment center so its somewhat like a hospital, but I do not work in the medical area. I would appreciate any guidance and whether or not a doctor's visit is in order. Thank you very much.
Thanks because I can be a little hypochondriac sometimes-so I was pretty paranoid about the possibilities of MRSA, but have heard it occurs more in children and elderly. Bites still not gone today and possibly looks like its spreading.
