Spider Bite or Not? You Never Know


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

Forefinger knuckle

Why I think it's a spider bite

It Burns. I can't touch it. I'm shaky and Nautious. Been vomiting since yesterday. Yesterday day it itched uncontrollably and when I woke up this morning its hard and red with a core.

What happened

Noticed it yesterday after working in the shed. Began itching worse and worse. Was wondering if it was a bight but couldn't see much. Woke up this morning sick and itchy throat and ears. Red hard with a core inside. I'm going to the doctor now.


  • I have had black widow bight before and this reminds me of it a little bit. U just never know
