How do I know what kind of spider bit me?

For the most part, you can’t tell a spider bit you just from your symptoms. You’ll get a little bump on your skin. It might get red, itchy, and swell up a bit. It might hurt, but no more than a bee sting and usually not for more than an hour or so.

What do spider bite bumps look like?

What does a household spider bite look like?
