A 16-year-old female asked about a 8-year-old female:
my finger is swollen, like it has a bump, and it's itchy but when i scratch it it burns a lot. i see 2 tiny red dots on it. did i get a spider bite?

I think so: Well...its hard to tell right now. Spider bites are extremely painful. The spider venue thats injected causes necrosis (kills cells causing them to look black). It can itch..but pain is the number one symptom. Yes it can be red as well. The 2 tiny dots may be the fang injection points.
