Tell us where your bite is (arm, leg, nose, whatever)
Why I think it's a spider bite
I killed it. It was a red colored spider.
Felt something on my leg, swatted it down twice. I think it must have got me either one or both times when I swatted it off my leg. Soon after, I felt some pain on my middle finger, the top joint of the finger was swollen, and in pain... Enough that anything touching the area would cause pain...almost like a sprain. I thought maybe I had a splinter or something like it encrusted in my finger, but nothing. Swelling continued for another day, on the third day, began to go back to normal, for the most part. Now going on the third day, and swelling is almost gone.
Swelling shown 2.5 days after bite...and about 80% gone.
