Look. I'm a bit of a tough guy. But if a bug bite is bad enough to ask advice of a forum, and it looks like that in the picture, carry that crap to the freaking doctor. Stop messing around here. GO.

Soak it in cider.

Take it home and soak it in cider (side her)!

Looks like a S. FL scorpion sting.

I dislike all creepy-crawlers!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Benadryl or any antihistamine would be a good step. Might try some antibiotic cream like neosporin or triple antibiotic ointment. Beyond that talk at a dr about it before it turns beet red on you and they have to take a knife to it.

To soak that in apple cider vinegar would hurt like a son of a gun. I would not do that.

To me, it looks infected and I would be going to the doctor with that. I think it's beyond home remedies.

I put hydrogen peroxide on cuts all the time. It really doesn't hurt. But alcohol or vinegar............

I'm all about home remedies, but looks like you waited to long and did the wrong things. Go to the doctor before it time to cut it off.
