Question Recurring Spider Bite Sore?

I got bit by a Spider 4-5 years ago on my hand.
The original bite ended up leaving a crater in my hand and took a long time to heal. It was painful and itchy at the same time.
The first year or two it would flare up every other month or so.
I can feel it coming with a tingling pain...then the blister shows up...blister turns dark...blister pops...leaving a (much smaller crater than the original) then it heals and I wait for the next one.
I haven't had a flare up in 2 years or so and now it's showing up again???
Why is this happening?
Is this normal from a spider bite?
I never have seeked medical attention as I have no insurance and I have a stubborn streak.
Any info you all may have would be appreciated....Tyffica

Tyffica,

Get UP off the keyboard and GO SEE A DOCTOR!!!!!!
Why are you playing with something so serious??? I don't understand!
Isn't there a free clinic around you? A health department?
You can get something done about it.

Why be stubborn about a spider bite, that keeps showing activity?
What if it's infected?
Get this treated before it gets worse and you wind up needing your hand/arm amputated to save your life!

GO NOW!!!!!
