Exclamation URGENT NEED HELP IDENTIFYING BUMP(pictures)

We just found a BAD dump on Vegas' sheath. It wasn't there a few hours ago. I groomed him earlier today and it was not there. My friend is a vet tech and we took her advice by draining and cleaning it with peroxide and neosporin. I'm very scared it could be a Brown Recluse bite. There is NO vet within two hours that will take him before morning without a $500 deposit that I really do not have. I'm going to keep an eye on it tonight but I really need some help identifying what it could be. I am so worried. If you have any idea what it is or what I could do to help til morning, please let me know. Here are pictures after I cleaned it-









Thank you so much.

I understand the money issue but I'd be getting him to the vet. That doesnt look good and its very likely he's in a good amount of pain from it.

He only seems to be in pain when I put neosporin on it. I am trying to get him to one. Everyone I know, including me has just paid bills and has no extra to lend me. I am going to keep checking on him though. No sleep for a mama with a sick baby!

See if you can find out about payment plans or CareCredit. I understand the bills thing. I just put $300 on my carecredit account that I don't have because one of my dorks managed to rip a good chunk out of his leg coming up the back stairs. Good luck.

Care Credit. It looks bad.
This is beyond 'home vetting' with neosporin...but morning ought to work, just don't fiddle with it any longer.

I have, and we apply for carecredit monthly. I'm 17 and my girlfriend doesn't have enough credit yet which we're working on.

The only thing really you could do until AM (and be waiting on the vet clinic steps at 8am) is hot pack with like a wet towel or washcloth.

well applying for it monthly is only going to make any credit history you do have messed up which will make it harder to get anyway.

hopefully its just a herpes b complex ulcer, this means it is viral, but i am not a vet or vet tech. i totally understand the money thing, i dont think this is an immediate life threatening event and waiting till the vet opens should be fine. an elizabethan collar would be a help. in regards to the money thing, you need to start looking into pet insurance, dump sat or cable and that might cover it.
