    Fang marks on my neck!

    As the title suggests, I have fang marks on my neck. I noticed them last night before going to bed, and theyíre about .2-.3cm apart. As far as I can tell, theyíre not scabs or anything, and I put rubbing alcohol on them and they didnít sting.

    I have a really bad bat phobia that pops up every once in a while. Since going to India, Iíve actually been a little less anxious here in the States, but these dots have me somewhat on edge.

    I donít want to bother a doctor in person with this, so I just wanted to clarify here:

    I did not see a bat in my apartment, did not wake up to a bat flying or a bat on my neck, and definitely was not bitten outside while awake, so Iím in clear for rabies, right? I wasnít able to check the apartment, really, because I got up and left for a weekend vacation and wonít be back until tomorrow, but I never saw a bat while I was there.

    Iím worried that if there was a bat, itíll be gone by the time I get back tonight!

    It was NOT a bat.

    What help are you getting for this phobia?

    I canít afford therapy right now, unfortunately. :/ I mostly try to get over it on my own. Sometimes I like to ask for a voice of reason.

    Just because it LOOKS like a fang mark, doesn't mean it is. I've had plenty of "looks like a fang mark" scares and obviously they never were. If there was a bat in your apartment you'd know, it wouldn't be able to just get in your apartment, bite you and walk out the door. Think about how noticeable it is when a bee or fly get into your apartment, bats are way bigger, if you saw a bat, you'd know.
