In brief: See doc

The brown recluse (loxoceles reclusa) can cause a variety of symptoms after a bite, however, a lot of the time, the bite is minor. If the area is becoming painful, oozing, blistering, or necrotic (black dead tissue), or if you have any systemic signs like nausea, vomiting, fevers, muscle pain or other problems, then you should see a physician asap.
