I woke up at 4 am this morning and felt something stinging near my armpit. I looked in the mirror and there’s a huge red white bump surrounded by red skin! Seriously it looks like a 3rd nipple, it’s freaky. It hasn’t improved and I’ve had a couple quick shooting pains down the back of my bitten arm to my elbow. There is no sign of necrosis, and other than the stinging, tender bump and weird occasional pains I feel fine.
I’m going to the doc tomorrow am first thing for antivenom, I’m not going to spend extended time experimenting on various remedies when I live the heart of black widow and brown recluse spider country (among a host of other extremely venomous species) but if anyone does have any info as to what might help prevent any further damage and help healing, it would be much appreciated! And healing thoughts too!
