In brief: Does it need to

Be surgically debrided? Did you need a tetanus shot? No signs of infection? Don't know how far out you are from the bite.
When i had a brown recluse bite on my forearm - used elevation, compress (arm was really swollen), frequent debridements and rest (felt quite sick with fever). Take it easy. On the other hand, some brown recluse bites cause almost no sx's.
