hello, I have a two year old grandson, he is very healthy, but we keep a clean house, but I myself have gotten bit by a spider over a year ago, and this past Saturday, my grandson woke up with a swollen eye area, redness, but no itching, my daughter took him to the ER and the doctor explained that it is a bug bite but not sure what kind of bite, no meds were given, the swelling seemed to go away, but the next day his eye closed shut, my daughter gave him Benadryl for the pain, because he said it hurt him. well, this morning he woke up with the same eye area swollen, redness, and complaining that it hurt, we are so worried, and crying, can anyone help with any suggestions? could it be a spider bite? he also has a bite behind his left ear, and left forehead, I have since cleaned his room, (I always keep it clean) and I put bug spray, I disinfect his room, my daughter and I were thinking the bugs could come in from the floor vent, but not sure, if anyone reads this please respond I can also be reached by email me at please, very urgent.....!!!!!
