Fifteen years ago I had been bitten by a brown recluse on my leg. I had seen it, and thought it was an ingrown hair but I actually joked about it being a brown recluse bite. The next morning I had brown/black goop dripping down my calf and found out I really did have a spider bite. I had to scrub the wound with hydrogen peroxide and a q-tip by inserting the q-tip into the hole in my leg and twisting it around- it hurt a bunch. The hole got deep enough that I could insert the entire head of the q-tip in my leg and it was large enough that I could put the q-tip in my leg without touching flesh. (If you really want some fun, do an image search on brown recluse bites- not for the faint of heart) After a while of scrubbing the thing out a dozen or so times a day, it healed, but it left a small scar. Fast forward 15 years to sometime prior to June 18th, I got a mosquito bite on that scar. I wasn't continually scratching it or anything, but it's actually finally scarring up- now, almost 2 full months later, long after all the other bites from that evening were long gone. Most bites, wounds and scratches heal in a normal amount of time for me- so this is a bit odd. What I was wondering, does anyone know about brown recluse bites and if that mosquito bite may have unleashed a small amount of latent venom or something... BTW, I have a general rule- "if you think you need to go to the doctor, go to the doctor, don't ask a bunch of dorks on the intarweb." If it were something that I believed was potentially dangerous, I would have seen a doctor.
