Spider Bite And Joint Soreness
I have a slightly large pimple like sore on my back. It's not itchy but it is painful. Could it be from a spider bite?
Unlikely: Most common lesion on the back as you described is a pimple or sebaceous cyst. Both of which are localized skin infections/inflammations. A spider bite could occur on back but is less likely. A spider bite could get infected or it could cause tissue necrosis as with the brown recluse spider bites. Best to have a doc look at it. ...Read more
Husband, Lucius has asthma. He has large sore on leg. Looks like spider bite. He's using inhaler 3 to 4 times a day. Not sure what to do.
I have a sore on my right leg and it hurts. My mom says it looks like a spider bite. It is white around the center and red around the white. Help?
Bite?: Could be a spider bite and it should resolve in about 7-10 days (get better day by day). Your description could also be a boil. Is it raised and dies it appear to get larger day by day? Boils are skin abscesses. I would get it checked by your pcp to remove any doubt. Both are easily treated. ...Read more
