Angry Black Recluse Spider Bite

I was bitten by a brown recluse spider almost 2 weeks ago. It is healing slowly due to my diabetes. Has anyone out there been bitten by a brown recluse? How long did it take to heal? I am on antibiotics. I also had boils at the same time and have been miserable. The area that was bitten is very tender and sore. Does anyone know how long this pain and itching will last? I hope someone can help me. Thanks.

Re: Black Recluse Spider Bite

My friend was bitten by the same and she had problems on and off for quite awhile. So just stay on top of it and if you don't feel right or the bite flares up make sure and call your Doc right away so he can treat you.
I hope it all stops for you soon, good luck
