Chyna -- Bugging Out Over Nasty Insect Bite

8/26/2010 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Another disgusting story about a bug bite -- this time the victim is former WWE star Chyna ... who claims a poisonous spider chomped on her leg, causing so much swelling ... that her doc sent her to the hospital.

Problem is -- Chyna didn't go to the ER because she claims, "It would have cost too much." So, according to her, she played doctor instead ... and operated on herself with a Swiss Army knife.

Chyna says she used the knife to essentially dig out the swollen golf ball sized lump that had formed in her leg ... leaving a pretty nasty, bloody crater. She then doused the wound in hydrogen peroxide and Neosporin ... but Chyna tells us she's in so much pain, she "can barely walk."

No word on what kind of spider is responsible for the carnage -- all Chyna knows is that the culprit attacked her while she was changing a toilet in her L.A. home sometime last month.

Ginny and Margaret -

I went back and looked at the photo more closely.

1-how do you get such a perfectly round hold from digging something out of your leg with a pocket knife and

2-that doesn't look like her leg at all

Such a publicity whore. What's with all the dramatic poses? ER costs too much? Golf ball-sized? Really? Why would you agree to post this story. Desperation from this man.

Who would guess a little spider could cause this. I left a pair of socks inside cowboy boots and got bit.

It takes a surprisingly long time to heal and leaves a red pock mark. It's not that big of a deal for men, but is for women who have shaved legs.

i'm a RN and she should of went straight to the hospital instead of digging it out herself... very foolish ... if it was a recluse she's in for some hard expensive times.. yikes it looks nasty ... that was not smart to do that... fool.... now she'll be paying more than she would of been if treated right away... i'm sure she'll be cultured for MRSA..

She can die from a spider bite. She's put her life at risk carving out her leg and had better get to the emergency room immediately. She needs an antibiotic prescription and wound care. How incredibly stupid!

SERIOUSLY !!!!!    

Could have been a Brown Recluse or Black Widow, both can cause a crater. The Brown Recluse bite will eat away the surrounding flesh leaving rotting and black, but antibiotics will stop the advance of the damage IF she gets to the Dr.
BTW ... what's with the fake "passed out" pic. Sheeezzz, how stupid does she think we are?!

Seriously, what IS up with that pose?!! She tryin' for a Playboy 'spread' offer or what? LOL!

Tom Terrific: At first I thought it looked like the antecubital space of the arm too but then clicked on the 'photo' link to see all the pics & yeah, on second look, it appears to be her lower leg afterall but like you, I first thought it was her arm too:) or rather....someone's arm.

as posted above - this could very well be Ca-MRSA (community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) - go to the friggin doc and get a culture before you die.

This is why we need universal healthcare. No American should say "it would cost too much" to go see a doctor or the ER!

you don't need health care to be treated in the ER . The law states everyone must be treated the same with or without insurance. The Hospitals cannot turn away anyone.. the hospitals have a duty to treat all that enters through their doors. I am a RN just like one of the above posters. She was foolish not to go to the Hospital. There are alot of people we take care of that have no insurance and they fully recover go home and never pay the bill. The hospitals also have many people they write off the hospital bill. she was foolish and not having insurance is not a excuse to not be treated.

Chyna has suffered so much since leaving the WWE. To me she was one of the all time babes even though she had a lot of muscle. My heart goes out to her and she is STILL the 9th Wonder of the World

It was more than likely a brown recluse or wolf spider bite. Both are very painful and have the results she described.
