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

Leg

Why I think it's a spider bite

I've had a spider bite years ago and it looks the same. It's spreading. It's got a bullseye. And it's really tender and swollen.

What happened

It happened when I was sleeping. I woke up and thought it was a pimple or something but the next day it grew 2x in size and grew a bullseye. I googled spiders around my area and found that brown recluse are in my area and I think that is what it is. My sister also has one and it's almost the same but her bullseye is a blackish color while mine is more of a yellowish greenish pearl brown color

Advice

  • I will get my mom to spray the house 2x a month if not more because this pain is horrible and I don't want to expierence it a third time
