Spider in the Wood Pile

Day 4 miserable pain caused by a small thing

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

Back, lower left side

Why I think it's a spider bite

I have seen a few in my home, but mostly I have a woodpile that I believe attracted a different kind of spider to home, and the woodpile is next to my home(against)

What happened

I was napping on the davenport on a thurs afternoon. Woke up to a bump that kind of stung and itched. Like a bee. Didn't pay much attention until it started getting bigger. The next day I was really concerned because it wasn't healing or looking like it was going to. By Sunday I had fever chills and felt very ill. It was Easter! Roughed it out no ER visit but when to the doctor the following Monday! I am on antibiotics!


  • I learned I need to move my wood pile! And thx to this ad I learned to ice pack it! Which makes sense this bite is constantly in fever! Even the doctor was having me heat it up with a heat pack! Felt like I was hurting it more and more everyday. Still trying to heal!!
