Could spider bites be causing scabs and red hives all over body?
I had been bitten by a spider over a week ago. I m guessing it was a brown recluse spider since I was in West Virginia. The spider bite me multiple time in both ankles. I took benadryl and advil for a few days until the itching and swelling went down. Here it is 10 day later the bites have scabbed over, but now I am breaking out in little swollen red hives all over. Could this be cause by that same spider bite? I have been taking Benadryl all day and it doesn t seem to help.
Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
As per your case history of hives, my treatment advice is –
1. Wear full sleeve clothes to avoid further such episodes. 2. Apply a soothing lotion like calamine lotion on affected region twice daily. 3. Take an antihistamine medication like levocetirizine twice daily for 7-10 days.
Ok, I need to know what would cause a leg and foot to swell up 4 times its normal size. The foot and leg became so large, it was having eruptions of liquid like volcano s. And all this occurred within a 2 hour period. This happened to me several years ago and was diagnosed as cellulitus. I was put on 4 IV s of antibiotics overnight. The typical blood poisoning red traces were visible slowly moving up my leg. They mentioned that it could have been a spider bite or something infecting the little toe where it started. I have been researching cellulitus and brown recluse spider bites and none of the symptoms described are what I had. So now I am confused as to what may have happened to cause such a bizarre affliction. Any idea s?

I was bitten in two places by a spider (don t know what kind), broke out in hives all over my body, went to Med-Point and was given two shots (Prednisone and Benadryl ). Two days later I now have a hard lump on my forearm (same are the bites are but not the same site). Still have some hives in torso area. Should I be concerned about the lump?

I am currently on Tramadol for a pain that I haven t been able to get rid of on my own with relaxation and OTC meds such as Tylenol and Advil. Tonight my heart has been palpitating and I want to know if it could be the pain pill or if not is it safe to take the Tramadol?
I have been having a sharp pain in my head for the past month-2 months, and I thought it was maybe because I was dehydrated, but continuing to drink water and stay hydrated didn t help, neither did Tylenol, or Aleve, and Advil Doesn t work for me for anything, so I didn t bother trying that. So do you have any idea what it could be, or what else I could try?
