So apparently this bug/spider bite I got on my arm that I shrugged off as nothing ended up being a big something. The bite infected my blood stream and had caused a red streak to form up to my lymph node and was going to get into my heart. I had to go to the ER and they used a scalpel to slice open the already painful spider-bite area, drain out this yellow pus, apply medicine that felt like someone holding a lighter to my arm, and then bandage me up.
I also now have to take two pills a day for a weak. Yaaaay.
Sounds like a brown recluse. I had to go to the ER for a brown recluse bite once. No fun, but it is good you got medical help, and you will recover!
any chance you could post a picture of the thing that bit you so I know what to freak out about
was it just the infection that causes all this or was it the type of spider?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
