Tried posting this earlier but the image didnt work, my apologies.

Woke up around 8 a.m. this morning to find this on my elbow, thought it was a spider bite but wondering if it could be something else? Staph? I dont want to self diagnose because I tried that with something much more serious once before and turned out Im still alive. Just wondering if this is something I need checked out by a professional. I drew the pen line around it at 9am and it hasnt grown but the yellow puss filled bumps concern me some. ANY help is appreciated.

Dear Capra,

A pus filled lesion that is so red should definitively be evaluated by your MD. I do not want you to get worse before Christmas! Please keep us posted.
