I had asked a question earlier this week about itchy red spot. Now I think was a brown recluse spider bite?

In brief: Brown reculse

Brown recluse spider bites often go unnoticed initially because they are usually painless bites.
Occasionally, some minor burning that feels like a bee sting is noticed at the time of the bite. Symptoms usually develop two to eight hours after a bite. Symptoms can include: severe pain at bite site after about 4 hours, severe itching, nausea, vomiting, fever, blistering, necrosis(tissue death).
