Couldn't find what you looking for?


We live in Central Texas.  My husband was stung yesterday by what we think was a red wasp.  Honestly we have lots of flying insects so it may have been something else.  The area swelled and caused some bruising.  Today the swelling has gone down, but there is a hole in his leg about the size of a pencil eraser and it keeps oozing blood.

Has anyone ever scene a bite or sting that starts bleeding well after the initial bite?


Hi Nemiki,

I'm not from Texas so not familiar with your bugs but it could be a stinger that is embedded in the wound.  As the swelling went down it may have started bleeding.

It could also indicate an infection.

If it continues I'd suggest he sees his doctor.

Good luck.
