Skin Boil from a Spider Bite

Spider Bite

Tell us where your bite is (arm, leg, nose, whatever)

On my right knee

Why I think it's a spider bite

I have never had a spider bite, I googled for like 2 days straight and I have all the symptoms of a spider bite. I am severely bruised around the bite like i was hit by a softball, its hard, and very warm. I didn't have a fever or body aches at all. It just hurts to stand and I can feel it burn when I walk around or stand in one place for too long. I am now racist against spiders of all colors, shapes and sizes.

What happened

I really don't know what happened, I remember it stinging one day out of no where so I automatically started squeezing it just in case it was venomous. I thought numerous times about it being an ingrown hair as well but that quickly diminished when the pain settled.


  • Don't ignore a sting!
  • Kill all insects that cross your path!
