This video is VERY DISGUSTING!!!! I'm warning you all!!!! There are more similar videos, but they don't mention what kind of spider?
My question is; this is not a tarantula bite is it? I hope not, because I ain't ever gonna touch my T if it is. :(
Has anyone ever been bit by their T, and what exactly happens to the area the T has bit?

they don't mention the spider, because well, they probably aren't sure it was a spider that bit them and caused that... I could be wrong, but I don't think that is a spider bite

Ugh. It looked like something laid an egg in her face. I couldn't see the first one cuz youtube wanted me to log in for it. I'd say definitely not a t bite and probably not a spider bite at all.

I agree, it looks more like a cyst than a bite to me.

the only T ive been taged by is a rose hair so that dosent realy count. as far as the video i cant watch it right now because of the computer im on but im prity sure ive seen it before. something like that happened to my X GF and she originaly blamed it on a spider. it looked identical to what is on the video (asuming it is the video that i alwready saw). i went to the doctor with her to get it checked out and he said it was most likely a sort of bacteria infection that almost alwayse gets blamed for a spider bite.

ive been bitten by a few true spiders and they have one thing in common.. IT HURTS. definalty hurts enough to wake you out of your sleep. so for any sort of growth/ thing that apears on someone unless theyre was a immideate pain that was at least enough to get you out of bed it should be a safe bet to rule out a spider bite.

If thats a result of a spider bite, then what you are seeing is most likely a secondary infection due to the bite, not a result of any toxins. It appears to be a full blown abscess and hopefully that guy decided to go to the hospital before he wound up septic or worse.

I dont know for sure what that was, but it was really gross. I would have gone to see a doctor by now if I was him.

Just google image brown recluse bite....that's a nasty one to get tagged by, I'm super paranoid, everytime I see a housespider I treat it as it was an escaped OBT rearing up lol.

black widows and brown recluses don't do that... I know a brown recluse has a pretty nasty result, but it isn't that.

to me it looked nothing like spider bite.
not only that but a very unlikely place to get bit by one.

I am willing to bet that most 'spider bites' are just misdiagnosed MRSA infections.

No proof to back this up, but when I get the chance to test this I'll post the article on the boards.

:eek: that is so sick i couldn't watch most of it. Gross. i feel sick to my stomach now for sure. i know, i know, i was most definitely warned. That was just way nastier than i ever imagined. That guy is insane for not going to a hospital or doctor LONG before that abscess got so big. He's lucky that staph infection didn't go to his brain. Spider bite - right!!
