What reason do you think they are spider related? Some people are more allergic to the hairs, maybe its a breaking out from that and not an actual bite? No, I am not an expert but it is something to consider.
Also, impetigo (spelling?) looks like that. Not sure about the ill part though.
Again, not claiming to have the answers,:? just a couple of suggestions.

Yes, agree with Maggie. Do you have any reason to believe they are from your spiders? Have you been bitten or do you usually come out in a rash when you have been handling them? If not, I'd say the best thing to do is go to your doctor and let him have a look at them:)

no i know it isn't from my spiders i know that for a fact
they are bites of somekind i was leaning more towards a house spider not a tarantula i dont hold my tarantulas and havent for sometime so i know it isn't from there uriticulating hairs
i was jus wondering where these bumps/bites are comming from and im pretty sure it can only be one of two things misquitoes or a household spider i could be wrong im jus going off what it looks like thanks-jason

I have been bitten by house spiders before and it itches like crazy. It also left small bumps and took a week or better to go away. I wouldnt worry too much unless it gets infected or just persists and doesnt clear up. Use triple AB ointment on it.

With yellow heads it sounds like it could be infected you should get checked out antibiotics could be in order.
