I think I was bit by a spider Friday night. The bite has turned into a blister and it is oozing. Should I pop the blister or just leave it? I don t think it was a brown recluse, but I am not sure. I have a headache , I m dizzy and have an upset stomach . I want to wait to call my doc tomorrow, but thought I would ask you...

I got bit by a spider on the 10th and on Friday there was a lot of pus in it so we squeezed it out. There s a lump there. And it looks like it s filling up again. Should I assume it still has poison in my eyelid. Also it is less but still lump, they either want to cut it out or steroid confused on what to do, still red as well

a spider bit my big toe months ago and it itches like crazy. After the bite a blister formed and I drained it and doctored it for a while. The skin around where I was bitten it wrinkly and flaking and now it appears the fluid or whatever is left inside has formed a few tiny blister things that itch! What can I do? I m 35 and 180 lbs. otherwise healthy
