Why are spiders bitting me so often?
I remember getting bitten by a lot of Mosquitos when I was a little kid, my brother and I both had pretty bad reactions to their bites. Most people just end up with a tiny or small bump but ours would be golf ball sized welts, there were days we couldn’t even go to school because we were too swollen.
When I was pregnant with my son I stopped getting bitten and up until about 1 month ago I hadn’t been bitten by anything in over 8 years, Mosquitos, fleas, spiders…they all left me alone.
A couple of weeks ago I woke up with 3 gnarly spider bites on my arm and back, they were huge and the skin was extremely hot for about 3 days. It was strange but I didn’t think much of it at first, but a few days later I was staying at my boyfriends house for a few days and I ended up with 8 more spider bites (there were itchy but didn’t swell hardly at all so I assume it was a tiny spider). Last week I went to visit my dad and I ended up with a huge bite on my leg.
My bf was in the same bed as me, but he didn’t get any bites, and while I was at my dads I had to share a room with my son and he didn’t get any bites either.
Why, after 8 years am I suddenly getting bitten 12x in 1 month? In completely different cities & states? Any why am I the only one getting bitten?
Any insight at all would be helpful at this point, I didn’t take pics of all of them, but if you want to see the bites you can view them here
