Bump by Cooper's eye

Food, Fitness and how to keep them healthy.

This morning I noticed a lump by Cooper's eye that looked kind of like a big bug bite. But it has gotten darker throughout the day. He's now itching his head on the carpet and it was bleeding a little so it's making me nervous. I tried to take some pics but only had my phone and he wouldn't sit still, so they didn't come out too great. Has anyone seen a bump like this?

Ouch! That looks painful! It does look like a bug bite or something, but it must be bothering him if he's pestering it that much. Maybe some Benadryl? Or ice on it?

He's never had it before, but I can run and grab him some.

I'd bet it's a bug bite, probably itchy as heck
