Hi--and we can continue after this if you need to. If this were a brown recluse spider then it's bite could still be affecting you not only with perhaps a rash or an ulcer at the bite site but systemically. If this were an insect bite and you aren't certain what exactly it was this could have been a tick bite and you might have Lyme disease and you'd need blood work to identify that and antibiotics for it. Either way you need to see a doctor about this right away to have it evaluated.
