Ulceration


The brown recluse spider bite starts out as reddened skin that then blisters and then ulcerates. Expect mild to moderate pain and itching 2-8 hours following the bite. The ulcer takes about a week to develop and months to heal. Have a professional evaluate the bite. Beware that MRSA can start out looking like a spider bite.

Only if infected.


Antibiotics should do nothing for a spider bite unless of course it is infected. This is not common, but can happen. I suppose that if you had a spider bite and you took anything and the bite regressed as it was wont to do, you could attribute succes to the ingested agent.

Boil Antibiotic Spider bites Abscess Boil Pus Skin

Timing is everything


If by "spider bites" you mean boils or abscesses (which people often mistakenly assume are spider bites), the answer depends on timing. If caught early enough, an antibiotic can sometimes keep the abscess from forming. But once there's a collection of pus under the skin, it's too late, and drainage is usually required.

Depends


There are only 4 Genera of spiders in the US that are dangerous to humans but generally, there may be 1 or 2 small puncture wounds in the center of a red, warm, swollen, initially painful (sometimes) but then sometimes itchy area. There may occasionally be some numbness in the area also. However, black widow bites and brown recluse and hobos can be quite different. Mosquito bites-one puncture.

Spider bite. Do spider bites develop into wart like appearance? However such a wart is red. I woke up with this on my leg

Answered by:

See a doctor...


Spider bites can be worse than you would think. I have seen a number of them that have become secondarily infected. The appearance will vary with the individual AND the type of spider. Better see a doctor to be sure you don't develop any other complications.
