Poisonous Spider Bites

My son is back from California.  While he was there, they went camping and did lots of other fun outdoorsy things.

Somewhere along the way, he must have been bitten by something. He came home with what we think are two poisonous spider bites. They started out as tiny, pimply looking things… They are growing, and his lymph nodes keep popping out and swelling. His neck is sore, his lymph nodes are sore and he says his skin hurts.  We’ve been to the doctor twice already, and he’s on two different antibiotics.

I’m a bit more calm now, as I initially Googled spider bite pictures, and that was a BIG mistake! I’m hoping the antibiotics are working… Sigh. This is definitely NOT FUN!

UPDATE: It’s been over a year and here are the scars… The bite on his chest doesn’t look too bad.

But the one on his cheek, looks like a bad chicken pox scar.

I’m just thankful it wasn’t worse.
