I guess I would want to know exactly what the culture came up with. The majority of spider bites are actually a misdiagnosis. MRSA infections are often thought to be spider bites. If it is MRSA you MUST take antibiotics.
I hesitate to take antibiotics because for the first chunk of my life I took them all the time for chronic ear infections. Now that I am an adult I try to save it for when I truly need it, like when I had strep throat.
I was bitten by a spider on my leg and I did not notice or realize it at the time. I thought it could have been an infected hair follicle. But it got really painful and big so I went to my doctor and he diagnosed it as a spider bite. They cultured it and said that I need antibiotics. I have been putting neosporin on it for a couple of days and it feels better and looks better. What do you all think? I am torn.
I know you already took the abx but i had to chime in because your spider bite incident sounds exactly like what happened to me when I was 8 months pregnant with DD!!! Doc gave me abx but I refused. So I put hydrogen peroxide on it several times a dAY along with a calendula salve and it was literally gone in 4 days!!! And let me tell you it was a nasty one! Brown recluse bite
