    Did you see the spider bite you??????????????????

    Can you ID any tiny -tiny hole marks from the spider sticking you??

    If a spider did attack you there would of been an reaction soon after most likely rash where the fangs/teeth pierced the skin, may have fever and chills .

    There will be pain and tenderness at bite site.

    This also brings swelling and redness

    May have headaches, from the toxin a spider inflicts with a bite.

    Infection may occur from the bite holes left behind after a bite.

    Muscle aches near bite site(arm/leg) stiffness could occur as well.

    The healing time can help determine if it was a spider bite since this is usually a few weeks to a few months.

    Severe itching occurs with ANY spider bite,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, since the spider inflicts a toxin to the human body.

    The affects can be immediately or hours later, along with either mild to intense.

    The person may have nausea/vomiting this is the way the body eliminates  the toxin ( venom) the spider gave them.

    Spider bites seem to affect all body systems so could have restlessness, anxiousness, nervousness,

    IPERSONALLY think its an abscess................................

    ....however might want to see your health care provider....

    It could be. I had a friend that was bitten by a spider, and the bite turned gangrenous and he lost half his hand to amputation.
