Does anyone know of any long term effects from Brown Recluse Spider bites? I had two bites on the leg about 2 inches apart in May 2007. After terrible pain and swelling and Dr. visits, all has been well until this week. Now I have the pain with very sore lumps where the bites occured but no swelling. My doctor said my body would adsorb the poison. Not sure what that leads to. I admit, I hate spiders more than ever.
Am I dreaming or what? No injuries on the leg since the bites. I never want to see another Brown Recluse! Gareth
