Why I think it's a spider bite

the two puncture wounds

What happened

I was pulling lifting a stack of files out of a plastic bin in my basement. I didn't notice it at first, only a couple of hours later because it was a little itchy, swollen and a little painful just at the site of the bite. I washed the area with soap and water and applied an antibiotic ointment. I did not see a doctor as it seems like a minor bug bite. I didn't see the spider. I would probably freak out if I saw what or how big it was that bit me.

Advice

  • Obviously if I thought it might be serious, I would seek professional medical attention.
  • This photo was taken 4 days after the bite. It looks about the same as it did originally so I will continue to watch it.
