    I still have a scar from the recluse that bit me, that was a nasty sore. I had fever in the leg it bit me on.

    Yeah. It can be pretty nasty without treatment. I’ve seen them get pretty big and full of purulent drainage without antibiotics.

    We don’t have recluse we have hobo sliders. I got bit by one year’s ago on my shine. The dr said I got lucky it didn’t bite my calf or thigh. Antibiotics and kept it clean. I have scars from where the tissue rotted out. 64007958-575E-4473-B5CF-C7E86332621B.jpeg

    Hobo spiders are a nasty little creature. We have a wolf spider in West Virginia that looks exactly like them. It’s nearly impossible to tell them apart.

    Add snakes to the kill-list too! Hate those things. Anything moves that fast and doesn't have legs?.....it dies! LOL

    I got stung by something in my Arizona garage. Sudden and sharp. Started swelling and turning red almost immediately. Numbness moved up my arm slowly from the sting. Called poison control. Answered a few questions and was told to go get benedryl. (Spelling?). Took 10 hours but back to normal. Wasn't a scorpion.

    Benadryl reduces the swelling and irritation where it is an antihistamine.
