The SPIDERS are COMING!


It sounds more like a brown recluse bite than a widow bite. It maybe just an infection. My friend had to have IV antibiotics and his whole lower leg opened to the bone to clean it out. They were talking amputation there for a while.

With a Brown Recluse spider bite, there is a deep hole at the bite where the tissue has died. This is not that way. Went to the doctor again today, and he said that it seems to healing OK. Its just going to take a while. The swelling is down a little, but its getting red'er, from the poison and infection. He said unless it gets worse, no need to see him again. Thats a relief.

Any chance this could be a MRSA infection?

Keep us posted.

I don't believe it is. At work and at home, I cut myself all the time, and it is extremely rare for me to get any kind of infection. It just doesn't happen. I hardly ever have to use any medicine of any kind, so it is unlikely it is a MRSA infection. The doctor I went to has treated tons of spider bites, and seems certan it is a spider bite. The shot he gave me has helped, the infection (or what ever it is) is now concentrating around the bite area. All other swelling has either gone completely, or is about gone. Fortunately, I do not have to see him again unless it gets worse. Keep in mind though, I am going by what the Doctor has told me. I know that an MRSA infection can start the same way mine did. However, if it were, then I doubt there would have been this quick of improvement as I got. Its just so unusual for me to get any infection though. Maybe I had some sort of allergic reaction to what ever it is. I have never had a bit to do this to me. Since the "bite", I am seeing those dern spiders everywhere.

Thank you for your concern.

Well, a week has passed since I went to the doctor last, and that dern bite is finally history. There is still a little swelling at the bite area, but other than that,, all healed up! Now I have to get back to work with my house. Never enough hours in a day.

next time, spray the work area w/vinegar/water ( 1/2 & 1/2 ),,, kills the spiders & you can eat off the floor if you add some greens & olive oil

Now thats a great idea! However, knowing my luck, I'd probably slip and fall in the olive oil, and break something.
