Why I think it's a spider bite
Thought it was a mosquito, smashed it. It was inside my sweatpants.
I was outside working. I have seen numerous small spiders around the newly poured gravel at my recently constructed home. I was sitting at the table with my husband and felt a bite inside my pants. Naturally I thought it was a mosquito or a chigger. I smashed it and went on. It began to itch and I scratched. I really didn't notice anything until the next morning when it was red. The further into the day it got, it began to bruise and become hot and red. It has been two days. I have not seen a doctor, but have every intention tomorrow or the next day. It is bruising more and more and the center has become hard and full of pus. It is still itching and red. I sprayed the outside perimeter of my home with insect spray. Big mistake. Now I am seeing these spiders inside my home. They look like Wolf Spiders.
- If something bites you, do not overlook it as if it was nothing.
- After researching spider bites on the internet, they can do a lot of harm to your body and leave scarring.
