I had a huge spider bite on my leg and I ended up draining and peeling the skin off after I peeled the skin off the white meat is visible what should?

Since you: Are not a Chicken I am not sure what you mean by "white meat" If you mean NON-PIGMENTED skin this may be normal in pigmented individuals.the SPIDER BITE is a TOXIN which leads to NECROSIS (="DEATH!!) of the EPIDERMIS (Most superficial layer of the skin.
It DIES, sometimes BLISTERS and the Dead Skin peels away. INFECTION can complicate and delay healing!
Hope this is helpful!

Looks like spider bite on top of toes, went away and came back within 2 weeks. Painful, skin peeling, blister like with white pus inside?

Looks like spider bite on top of toes, went away and came back within 2 weeks. Painful, skin peeling, blister like with white pus inside?

Maybe: This could be mrsa. It might not be. As long as you've got no fever, there's no penetrating trauma, it's not expanding, and it's not very painful, it is reasonable to see what it does over the next couple of days. Warm epsom salt water soaks, dial soap and water scrubs, and maybe some topical antibiotic ointment would be my home treatment if the above criteria are met. ...Read more

What does a brown recluse spider bite look like I have a bite on index finger and the skin is coming off. It burns and itches, has little ant bite type bumps

A : A brown recluse bite can have different appearances. There can be almost no signs of the bite or there can be a dark escar (scab) with surrounding white tissue (that is dead). In some cases the brown recluse's bite can be necrotoxic and cause very severe damage. It can large amounts of skin to die and can eat into the muscle as well. This type of reaction is usually associated with fever, muscle and joint pain and feeling very ill. I can not diagnose the cause of your symptoms. Brown recluses are actually very little and non-descript looking. If your skin is sloughing off your finger — do recommend that this be medically evaluated. ...Read more
