Black spot on upper inner thigh with spreading bruising and swelling
My fiance had a black swollen lump just show up on his leg (upper thigh) it has caused itching burning and pain.  Now there is swelling and bruising running down the area.  No pus really comes out.  We dont have medical insurance.  I just am concerned, at first I thought it could be a buried tick but I just dont see anything down there

Definitely go see the doctor on this one, even if you have to pay cash.  Tick bites only itch or burn with a rare allergy to tick saliva.  Some spider bites can do a lot of damage.  Whether it is a tick or spider, he most likely needs antibiotics.  Believe me, he does not want any tick borne diseases or necrotic tissue, especially without insurance.
