Spider Bite mirroring a Brown Recluse (exactly, but smaller in size) in Southeast Georgia-HELP!!!!
I have been severely bitten by an unseen spider that is giving me a reaction similar to a brown recluse. I did not see the spider, however, there are TONS of spiders in my garage about an inch and a half long that strongly resemble wolf spiders.. (hairy, two parallel lines straight down the back, not violin shaped).. they weave webs in the top of the garage and live in them, and they are black with the white striping.
I don't know if these are the ones, but the blister and bulls eye mark of the bite got so bad (with pains in my leg and a fever of 100 degrees) that I've been put on antibiotics.. there is no necrotic black occurring (except in the skin that has fallen off the blister 48 hours later).
