- Was bitten by a white tail spider about eight days ago, and the pain from the bite came on very gradually, through the day, and it was not until the second day that a small [Removed] lump appeared in the center of a red welt from the bite. I am a generally very healthy person, but recently my immunity has been under more pressure, from a new relationship with somebody withdrawing from opiates, and also a minor accident, but I did not anticipate that I would have any problem with a white tail bite. However, this morning, eight days later, I am heading out to go to casualty at the local hospital (thinking it best to be well informed via the internet first), because the bite is becoming a larger ulcer as the inflammation subsides. The inflammation peaked at around day 5, but as the inflammation is subsiding, the small point of entry of the spider bite, is becoming an open sore. There is not much puss, but a lot of lymph. The puss has not been exposed at the skin at any time, but simply looked like a pimple at first, and then a scab developed around it, and then the scab became a blister, and then by this morning it was an open wound. I have wondered if it was because of a bacteria on my skin, but I have also wondered about a psycho-somatic response, since I have noticed that the spider bite hurts more after every time I complain to anybody about it. The blister and its late appearance, (it did not show up until after I first told another person about the spider bite) has also make me wonder about whether there maybe any connection between having the herpes virus and the white tail bite forming an ulcer? Many people have the herpes virus in a dormant form, and like me, have never had an outbreak on the genitals, but when our immunity is run down, the herpes simplex viruses tend to assault any vulnerable patch of skin. Some years ago I got given a homeopathic medicine that cured me of herpes on my lips, (although I understand homeopathy is a controversial method, my experience is of the medicines disrupting normal patterns of dreams, enabling the subconscious to become more astute to the daily conditions of life), and I have recently had repeated contact with that same substance, which could explain how the ulcer began. The medicine that cured the herpes outbreaks with me, was only oregano though, so I guess doctors are unlikely to want to agree. However, how the oregano in a homeopathic potency, impacted on my nightly dreams, was by making me conscious that if I over expose my own self belief in being hard done by to the extent that I provide information to another person which hurts their well being, then I am more likely to blister on my lip from the herpes virus. So it sort of makes sense to me, that since showing the spider bite to my partner, was what precipitated it hurting more, that perhaps the herpes virus is involved. I will ask the hospital to test for that this morning.
