Spider Bite in Indiana

What bit me??

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

Right arm

Why I think it's a spider bite

I really have no idea what it is.

What happened

I live in Indiana. A few days ago I noticed what I thought was just a bruise on my arm, the next day it had a bullseye appearance. There is not any swelling or itching. The only symptom that I have is that my arm has been aching since yesterday. I really don't want to go to the doctors if it's just a bug bite that will go away on it's own. But if it's a brown recluse bite, that's another story....hoping someone can tell me what they think might of bit me!!


  • Live in Indiana, noticed it 3 days ago, no swelling, no itching but arm does ache
