Ok last night when i was lying on my bed a spider crawled over my foot (quite a big bugger aswell!) i tried to swat the thing and it seemed to nip me. Any way i killed it, but today my foot has a sort of rashy reddish look, it doesnt hurt just itches abit. Do you think I should get it checked out or just leave it?

when i get bitten i always get a rash or swelling, and they always itch till i cant bear it! i dont think its poisonous or anything but you might have had an allergic reaction or something. maybe it would be worth going to the pharmacy and asking them for a cream or taking an antihistamine.

when you get bit by flys or things, it goes red and itches also, i think its the bodys defence against it. Im sure theres nothing to worry about.

Ok this will probably just worry you but i think i should say. When i was on holiday in texas a couple of weeks ago my sister got bitten by a spider. (A brown recluse) She went to the doctor and got antibiotics and is fine now but from talking to other people it could have been really bad and one person who i talked to knew someone who died from a brown recluse bite. Im sure yours isnt anything like that but i would go see a doctor anyway just to check

lol brown recluses arent actually common in England , so I dont think he was bitten by one :rolleyes: . If I saw a brown recluse on my foot (PICTURE ) Im pretty sure I would be a bit more worried than a common spider.

Yeah I got bitten a couple of weeks ago, but I was sleeping so I didnt feel it. It swell up a bit and was extremly itchy but I just avoided the temptation to scratch it and it soon went down.

theyre a hell of a lot smaller than that picture shows. Theyre about 8/8 of an inch long and most of the time you dont realise its there till after it bites you ubt i know that there arnt any in england. My point was that you should get it checked by a doctor

oic. Either way, brown recluse not common in England so it was unlikely he got bitten by one. Also, if you google image "Brown recluse", you get to see the effects of the bite (warning, you might find some a bit nasty), and Im sure he hasnt got those bites.
