Please help ID this bug bite

I got munched on by an insect, species unknown. Hereís a shot of one of four bites on my torso. No judging my girth. Itís a bite on my left side love handle. I have a matching bite on the other side. Can you tell what kind of bug bit me?

it is a small infection, which is creating the pus (dead white blood cells and plasma)

like a spider

real question is: are there any red lines leading away from it?


really real question is: any joint pain?

That’s possible due to location of the bites.
