GET TO A DOCTOR NOW! Dude, a brown recluse spider is very poisonous.
people mistake a brown recluse for a lot of bites. Dude, people lose LIMBS to brown recluse bite.
Thank you LL for caring. I did see a doctor yesterday and I have some very good medicine if it gets worse. But actually it is getting better. When I awoke this morning it was almost gone (the pain that is, not my thumb).
Because I had so much pain and swelling from such a small spider I could imagine what would happen from a large adult spider. I would sympathize with anyone who had the full blast.
