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
I have statge 4 cirrhosis......with an obvious spider bite...recomendations? i have augmentin, very stiff, hot and sore..
Go to Urgent Care/ER: Augmentin is a brand of amoxicillin & clavulanate (http://www.drugs.com/augmentin.html) which can cause liver issues and are best avoided in those w/liver problems. I can't tell if "very stiff, hot and sore" is due to spider bite or from infection so it's best for you to see medical attention immediately, whether at Urgent Care or local ER. ...Read more

Possible spider bite? Blister on arm, area is red around the blister, arm is sore, mild discomfort. Maybe hobo spider? Go 2 ER now to reduce damage?
Probably not: There are hobo spiders in WA. If they ever bite at all, the result is much less severe than brown recluse. Expert opinion differs as to the existence of any bites by hobos. They are very reluctant to attack. Unless you saw and felt a bite, then took the creature for expert identification, assume it is something else. Best bet is a dermatologist. ...Read more
