It has been 2 weeks and the spot is dark and swollen. My doc said: "Let's watch and see..." I'm getting nervous. How long do these spider bites last?

Two weeks? No red line - if one developes get to er, no bulls eye which usually forms w/in 1 - 72 hrs., not painful yet still hard & swollen.... did not mention if you had applied triple anti antibiotic cream or rubbing alcohol or hydrogen peroxide solution a few times daily, either way... with a healthy immune system you should have noticed at some reduction in size within three to seven days and near complete healing within two - three weeks depending... I would return for a follow up visit at this point.

Very helpful - thanks. This is the strangest thing...

dark and swollen? Is it changing colors too? Have you gotten more muscular since that time, with the ability to shoot web from your wrists? :)<br />

Check every 10 minutes. Mark how big it gets every time you check. If it turns colors or gets really big go see a docter

No but the dark spot is not getting any bigger so that is a good thing.

Shouldn't last two weeks.

Go see your doctor right away. we sometimes think that things will heal on their own, <br />
Two weeks and no treatment, for now look it up on the internet and see if your doc will sent you to a specialist.<br />
Take care

omg!

Best Answer

argh! its alive! i'm sorry but that just creeps me out......
what sort of spider was it if you don't mind me asking? i think the bite shouldn't be the way it is &amp; how you described it. although some will react differently to spider bite then others.

Best Answer

Doc says it might be a flying insect. I'm going to a diff doc tomorrow morning. I'm a little curious but not scared. Looks more like tissue has formed around the wound so who knows maybe it is a cut. It's my little experiment!!
