Hey Allen, look on the bright side! Anyone sees the header of this thread "Pufferfish bitten by a brown female" they can always say you're racially diverse! laugh

You guys are so funny - ROTFLMAO. "racially diverse" NO offense but this is funny.

ALLEN - I am so glad ur ok.

I scream like a ..... when I see a spider. I am masculine until the sheer or sharp pangs of fear arise.

See the pics here of the spiders made my skin crawl.

You were LUCKY pufferfish, so glad you are doing well. Interesting the smaller the spider, the lesser the venom. It's the opposite effect regarding our Rattlesnakes. Fully grown Rattlers secrete a certain amount vs a baby rattler who les it all out

About 6 months ago in my garage, I saw my first brown recluse. We have many black widows also.

Spider bite still a bit stiff with a small amount of pain. I didn't develop any necrosis. However the skin is peeling off like in a bad sunburn.

It happened again sick

One week ago. I didn't see the spider and it probably happened at night while I was asleep. I had to move my trash can out to the road where they could pick it up. I noticed there were spider webs on it.

This bite is below my left eye. (Yes, on my face!!!) The first few days it was like a small pimple that irritated and itched. The pimple had in the top of it a small brown object. Then it started swelling up, into a hard knot like a marble about 3/8 inch diameter. The knot and the pain started increasing. It obviously contained some fluid and puss. I looked at it with a magnifying mirror and I believe I saw little holes like when a spider bites. The problem seems somewhat similar to what I had almost a year ago but on my hand then. However the facial skin is pretty sensitive. The knot has swollen to about a 1/2 inch surrounded by red like a bad sunburn.

The good thing seems to be that the wound has not developed a necrotic crust. That seems to be the real danger from brown recluse bites.

I saw the Dr. today and he agrees that it was at least some kind of a small "beast". He said it looks like there are some little mouth parts within the bite (yuk!). sick The Dr. prescribed some antibiotic pills to take for 2 weeks.

It's interesting that it was almost a year after the previous bite.

Tomorrow I am going to buy insect/spider spray. I didn't move my trash barrel this week. I'll spray it good before I do.

P.S. Should this have been placed under "female abuse"? lol

I have to answer my own post!

It's better this morning: Pain and swelling down.

Apparently what works is antihistamine and anti-inflammatory. I have used Advil PM over night. Plain Advil during the day with an antihistamine
