  • Ow! Ow! Ow! (Medicine Stings!)

    A month ago I was bitten by (I believe) a brown recluse. I delayed going to the doctor (didn't want to) until my friends on FB screamed at me. Antibiotics made me feel A LOT better, having little to do with the wound. The wound is healing well and I see the doctor again in the morning. So basically, I'm fine.

    But the medicine is stinging like crazy! OWWWWW!!!!

    Okay, babyish tirade over now...

    Still stings - oww!

      Dear Teallaura,

      You are an idiot for not going to the hospital right away.

      Your friend,
      Sparko.

        Dear Sparky,

        I was really sick and sitting up for more than a few minutes was really hard.

              That should have been your first clue. Call 911.

                  Never mind that it is for medicines taken orally.

                      So, good report from doctor - no infection and we can wait to see rather than going ahead with the excision.

                      The dead stuff is pulling away exposing the live, sensitive stuff - which explains the ow factor.

                        I would think that any spider bite from your area would be viewed as a necessary medical check.

                              I would think if those are the only 2 and you think it's a recluse, then get thee to the doctor posthaste!
