Brown Recluse Spider Bites

The brown recluse spider is a common insect largely found in the Midwestern and Southern United States. Most reported spider bites that lead to any skin tissue damage are from this spider; however, most bites lead to the formation of small lesions that are self-limiting and heal on their own. These small lesions cause the bite area to be itchy and red with some pain and a small white blister within 6 hours of the bite. Only about 10% of all reported brown recluse spider bites lead to the formation of severe lesions. Other symptoms of this spider bite can be nausea, vomiting, fever, and muscle pain.
