I don’t want to really get into it, but my husband was bit around 72 hours ago by something on his neck. He was sure, as I was, it was a brown. His neck is pretty nasty but is not bruised. It looks nothing like the pictures on the links here.It happened in bed, he woke up asking me to look at it. The only way I could explain it is it looked like this () A smile and a frown together,that was bright red with a whole bunch of red dots around it. It was no time at all that it looked like connect the dots. It is now this huge scab looking thing. He did not get ill. It’s funny how things happen. I am so thankful for this post, as we were both sure this was a brown recluse that had done this.
Thank you so very much. I also am praying yours was not either. I can not thank you enough for posting this when you did. I myself almost died of a spider bite in 1992. So they can be very serious.
Again thanks. I learned a lot here with the links and all.
