Possible spider bite? Should I go to er?
I noticed a mark that looked like a spider bite earlier today. I thought it was a little pimple the past couple days. It is red, sore, a warm to the touch. My mom drew a line around the redness and t had extended a tiny bit past it. So should I go to er? It is kinda hard around the mark!

Sounds more like a skin abscess or staph infection.
If it hurts to touch or pressure, it isn't a bite.Source(s): UC Irvine, entomology

Schedule an appointment with your doctor. If it isn't immediate, then I wouldn't go to the ER. Unless it is very painful and is stopping you from living your life as you would regularly, then I would seek immediate medical attention.
