Unknown bite.. Dx?

Chief Complaint A 68 y/o Indian female presents with an unknown bite at home 4 days back. She wakes up with itching in the middle of night and applied mustard oil on it. She complained of moderate to severe itching but no pain. History Non diabetic patient, has history of elevated uric acid. No other past medical history or fever. She has not applied any ointment or taken any medicine for this. Examination A red dry area was noted. Initially the redness was in small area and in 2 days it spread and involved 1.5 cm of radius. Diagnosis Is it a spider bite? or anything else? Treatment How it should be treated?
