My wife was bitten by what we belive was a spider last Tuesday, July 21, 2009. I say "belive" because she didn't feel anything biting her. She noticed a burning/hurting sensation on the right side of her neck right on the curve,going from back to the side.. I looked @ it & could not see anything but a couple of small "pin hole sized bites" it was not swollen, or red. Tuesday night it got worse & by Wed. nite it had turned red & was burning like a blister & her neck was beginning to swell. She started sweating OR freezing,just could'nt get comfortable. In photo-1 below which was taken Wed. nite you can see the entire area where she was bitten which measured 2-1/2" high & 1" wide. I counted about 8-small bites inside the red area. Thursday morning the red was puffy & it had even more bites visible. My wfe was complaining of severe muscle Tightness,and tiredness and No Appetite what-so-ever! By Monday of this week I re-counted the bites & came up with 21 bites. Does anyone have ANY IDEA what kind of Spider this may have been,and what we can expect next? She HAS took a Round of "Bactrum" (not sure of that Spelling but do know it's an antibiotic),and the Bites are now starting to dry out,and getting covered over in a Black looking scab. DOES anyone have ANY IDEA what this may have been that bit her & just how toxic it was. Below are two photos, The 1st one is of the 2nd. day after it happened, & photo 2 shows how the area has cleared up since last week. Photo 2 was taken today, July 31, 2009.
