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.

I have a small bump on the inner side of my knee cap. It hurts when I walk and kneel down. No idea what it is from. What is it Thought it was a spider bite a few months back. Then it looked like a bruise and now is a bump a little smaller than a dime.

Yes,

Yes, please have it looked at. It sounds like it is a post-infectious swollen area. As it is persistent and you have pain, you need to be evaluated. If you have increased redness, pain, fever, or discharge, then you will need to be seen in the Emergency Room.

That can occur with

What kind of spider bite leaves a bruise?

From what I have

Bruise
read this is not limited to one species. Seek medical care asap if you think a spider bit you & you have severe pain (can be felt at bite site & possibly chest, back or abdomen); abdominal cramping /rigidness or ulceration of skin at site. You may need a tetanus shot (if you don't know when your last shot was or it has been > 10 years). Also medical care if you develop signs of secondary infection

Dr. Scott Shields answered:

Can a spider bite on my toe bruise?

Yes

Spider_bites
Some spider bites are painful and can be dangerous. In many parts of America the Brown recluse (fiddle back) and black widow spiders are found. Both can give a nasty bite. I have seen many brown recluse bites that look bruised to the patient but the tissues are much worse off that just bruised. Spider bites can cause the tissue to break down and even large areas of skin and muscle can be lost.

uncommon to have bruising around a spider bit. In & of it's self it is not of great concern. Seek medical care asap if you think a spider bit you & you have severe pain (can be felt at bite site & possibly chest, back or abdomen); abdominal cramping /rigidness or ulceration of skin at site. You may need a tetanus shot (if you don't know when your last shot was or it has been > 10 years).

Yup, sounds like it. Ice, ibuprofen, hospital if it starts making an ulcer.
