Is this a spider bite? (picture included)?

I woke up this morning and I had this bite on my foot. It doesn't look like a misquito bite, but I don't know what it is. It doesn't itch - but it hurts. Ignore the scratch above the bite in the picture - that's totally different.

    go see a Doctor my uncle got a really bad spider bit it swelled then popped and now he has a whole in his leg from it.

    i'm not saying it will do that but it never hurts to get it checked out

    common spider bites usually itch. (like a mosquito bite)

    this does not sound like it is venom related (a bite)

    but may be a skin condition, or staph infection.

    just keep it clean, and apply a topical antibiotic, and this should

    clear up in a few days.

    -don't squeeze or scratch this- it will only prolong healing.

    if this worsens significantly, you might have a doctor

    examine it.
