Swollen foot, ankle swelling, itches and burns and hurts to walk on!

I have a swollen ass foot and my ankle is swelled up, and i'm pretty sure it's either from mosquito bites or spider bites... Either way it's a bug bite because they're marks. How do i let the swelling go down? My foot is deformed.

If it is Brown Recluse Spider, need to have it checked out now. They can cause you damage to your tissue and your nerveous system. If you don't think it is, then soak it some Epson Salt and then put some Iodine on it and wrap it. Then get some Cold Packs or ice in baggies with thin cloth over, like a piece of a T-shirt and keep the cold packs on it, but I would see a doctor for sure.

I once had a hornet bite once on my ankle, and it swelled up double my foot. Staying off of it is a must. I made a mistake and massaged it, which made it worse. Icing it comes to mind. It will get better, unless it was a brown recluse spider ...

it sound like you are allergic to what bit you....I would get to the doc in case it's a poisonous bug....if it's not and you are having an allergic reaction you could get a cortisone shot or something.
