She went to bed. When she woke up this morning the back of her leg has a huge itchy bump on it. I checked her room, and her bed. I couldn't find anything. I put some Benyadryl cream on it. She is better, but it is still scary. Has anything like this happened to you?

Yep! My little sister when she was 1 she woke up with a little red bump on her leg,We figured it mught be a mosquito bit or something then the next day she had several. We found out that it was spider bits and when she moved her legs cause she felt it crawling on her the spider would bit her. We searched her room and under her bed in a corner there was a small spider nest. We killed the spiders and sprayed her whole room with spider killing stuff and cleaned it thoroughly she didn't get bit again.

Yes, but we had a cat when it was a problem and I think the cat brought something in. There was another time when we had lots of bites. They were very itchy and it ws said to us that they were from No-See-Ums, which are a very small type of mosquito.

It must have been a mosquito bite or a spider bite. She might have gotten bitten outside before coming inside the house. I know that I have had spiders in my house before. Just have to make sure you treat it and if any other symptoms start showing up, you may want to take her to a medical center. Another possibly could be poison ivy if she was playing around outside.

Well, I have been bitten by a variety of unknown creatures. Yup, it is scary, but then poisonous creatures can't possibly enter the house. So it could be a mosquito or an ant. :) Cheers and happy mylotting

My kids wake up with bug bites every once in awhile. So do I. I never can tell at first if they are mosquito bites or spider bites. Spider bites usually get a little blister in the middle of them though.

Aww poor girl. Yes it has happened to my son, turned out to be a spider bite! He is fine... just watch it, and if you see anything odd happening around that area, or in her behavior seek medical help! It is scary because you have NO CLUE what has bitten her! Good luck!

Could be a mosquito bite or a spider bite. Both you probably wouldn't find in her room afterwards. She could have been bitten before she went to bed. Sometimes those things take a while to get big. Just observe it and see if it gets bigger than a quarter. Then I would see a doctor about it.
