we believe that my son has been bit by a spider, unaware of what kind... several people have said that it looks like a brown recluse.
i work for a doctor and until i could get a presciption of pencillin he had me start him on some benedryl to be safe. Now, he is taking some pencillin 3 times a day.
Its hard to tell if there are 2 puncture wounds because theres a slight brown scap over the area. Underneath the area, its covered completely with the red swelling and is alittle over a quarter size in width and height. There is a harden area but doesnt completely lay underneath the area thats red. its very tender to the touch, but the only symptom he is having is the soreness, and maybe a slight fever.
I am probally more freaked out then he is, but I just want to make sure that I am doing the right thing. He is now on antibiotics that my doctor had given him but he hasnt been to the hospital. I am not sure if anything else can be done.
Do I just go with my gut instinct and take him to the ER or just let the antibiotics take its course?
