What does a brown recluse spider bite look like I have a bite on index finger and the skin is coming off. It burns and itches, has little ant bite type bumps

What does a brown recluse spider bite look like I have a bite on index finger and the skin is coming off. It burns and itches, has little ant bite type bumps

A : A brown recluse bite can have different appearances. There can be almost no signs of the bite or there can be a dark escar (scab) with surrounding white tissue (that is dead). In some cases the brown recluse's bite can be necrotoxic and cause very severe damage. It can large amounts of skin to die and can eat into the muscle as well. This type of reaction is usually associated with fever, muscle and joint pain and feeling very ill. I can not diagnose the cause of your symptoms. Brown recluses are actually very little and non-descript looking. If your skin is sloughing off your finger - do recommend that this be medically evaluated. ...Read more

Diabetic: Being a diebetic means the likelihood of reduced blood flow to extremities like feet and hands . Be sure it is not getting worse by drawing an outline around the exact edge of the swelling. If the swelling and redness starts to extend beyond the outline you need to see an md, or a foot specialist (podiatrist).

My mum eye lid are very swollen till cannot open her eyes .cause by ant bite..ant natural remedy?

Don't delay! ...Read more
