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 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.

Dr. Jerome Litt answered:

my mom had a rash under her arms that looked like spider bites wat is it?

RASH IN ARMPITS

Cortisol_level
WITHOUT SEEING THE RASH, IT'S DIFFICULT TO MAKE AN ACCURATE DIAGNOSIS. THIS SOUNDS LIKE A RASH DUE TO EITHER A NEW SWEATER OR BLOUSE, OR AN UNDERARM DEODORANT OR A NEW SOAP, OR NEW LAUNDRY DETERGENT. WARM WATER COMPRESSES, A MILD CLEANSER LIKE CETAPHIL, AND AN OVER-THE-COUNTER HYDROCORTISONE CREAM, TWICE DAILY MIGHT GIVER SOME RELIEF. IF NO BETTER, HAVE HER EXAMINED BY A DERMATOLOGIST.
