Beware of light brown spiders with a dark mark on the back that resembles a violin. Sometimes called a “fiddleback” or “violin spider,” its name is the brown recluse and it packs a venomous bite. Dr. Eric Bouldin, a podiatric physician and surgeon said, “There are many types of venomous insects and spiders that can cause this type of wound, and people can react very differently to them,” Bouldin said.

“Treatment always depends on the wound, but one particular man’s case was very unusual, and while we think it might have been a brown recluse bite that later became infected, we can’t be sure. “I normally see about two cases a year that are probably brown recluse bites, but the patient usually doesn’t bring it in, nor do I really want them to. “The best advice is prevention and early detection. If you think you’ve been bitten, see a doctor right away.”
