Spider bites can keep getting worse and worse as the poison spreads. But if you pulled the tick off yourself, then of course you know for sure it isn't a spider :)
Is there any way you could get a fly mask on him without it really chaffing the spot more?
I didn't pull a tick off I just assumed it was because when I first noticed it it looked the same as all the rest of his tick bites where I had removed oneand he hasn't gotten one on his head before so he's never been able to mess with them and they could heal, but I guess I should look into the spider route I hadn't thought about it. As far as the fly mask the wound is a position where it would most definetly rub on it, But thanks for the information it was very helpful.
