Been awhile but I can say that the Brown Recluse in older times was referred to as’The spider that hides’.
Ugly wound that takes some time to heal.
She received what was interpreted as another on her stomach.They treated it as a spider bite for one month.Then it colonized into four holes.
They did a biopsy and found out it was MRSA.
Seven days of three hours in the morning of a power full antibiotic and three hours in the evening for one week.All the while having to change the IV entrance as the anti-biotic was so HOT it kept collapsing her veins.
If diagnosed properly in the early stages,all that she would have had to take was oral medicine.Rough time

Wow, that’s pretty scary.
When it was diagnosed as MRSA, did it have anything to do with the spider’s bite itself? I mean, do these spiders harbour those bacteria?
Thanks for the input.
