This began life as a spider bite, but within 24 hours had bloomed into an infected, terrific (yet hideously painful) boil. I have been to the doctor and am now taking horse-size antibiotic pills. The doctor said to expect that it will either a) erupt on its own or b) I will need to come in to have it drained and cleaned. In either case I will do my utmost to document the experience for you, my nasty lovelies.

Wait??? Noooooo!! Surely, to make it more comfortable, you'll need to deal with that, like NOW!!

DocMcFanjo Thu 09-Jun-16 07:05:16

Agree. BURST IT!

Please don't waste the NHS's time with that! please take photos while you diy

TheWizardOfOs Thu 09-Jun-16 07:14:44

Oh my. That is a beauty.

Can we have more pics please.

A spider?! In the U.K.?

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Thu 09-Jun-16 07:25:15

I got a spider bite a couple of years ago in the UK, I needed anti biotics and I've still got the scar. It was awful!

Can't wait!

cosmicglittergirl Thu 09-Jun-16 09:04:18

I'm not scared of spiders but I don't want them biting me. shock

cosmicglittergirl Thu 09-Jun-16 09:04:35

Looking forward to seeing this pop though.

I forgot to mention I live in Texas, land of very big spiders and insects.

This morning it has not burst. If it's still acting this way after work I will DIY it and get dad to film for you (although she may vomit).

This fella didn't bite me, but visited me at my office. Texas is a strange land, where these run free. He was three inches across and four inches long.

DoubleNegativePanda Thu 09-Jun-16 13:43:27

DD. Not my dad. Although he'd probably be a willing participant.

ArmfulOfRoses Thu 09-Jun-16 14:06:13

How long until 'tonight' where you are op?

I'm excited blush

RedCrimson Thu 09-Jun-16 18:32:42

And that's Texas off my list for a potential place to live. That spider is terrifying!

You need to squeeze it now and video it to make up for the shock of me seeing that spider!

This is the reason I don't travel

BankWadger Thu 09-Jun-16 18:37:42

envy at the pus and envy at the spider (I 'd love a tarantula)

SandunesAndRainclouds Thu 09-Jun-16 20:35:45

I am never going to Texas, that's for sure.

pieceofpurplesky Thu 09-Jun-16 22:26:53

That's a fluffy spider

doodlejump1980 Thu 09-Jun-16 22:29:42

Nope! Never going to Texas now! Eek!

barkingfly Thu 09-Jun-16 22:39:23

Y'all know everything is bigger in Texas.

SingingSands Thu 09-Jun-16 22:42:18

I have a lovely friend living in Texas.
I'm not visiting her. Ever.

TheSpottedZebra Thu 09-Jun-16 22:46:05

Oh it's fine if she vomits as long as she holds the camera steady. Truth be told, she could probably post a picture of that and we'd all congratulate her.

Dame if you wanted to, you could show us your scar? grin

Holy hell. Just tried to poke/pop/squeeze the bugger and it hurt so badly. Sent me straight through the roof.

I'm off to hot flannel it and hope that brings it up some. If I press/squeeze around the edges, it fees like a marble under there. This is going to be lovely if I can manage it!

No worries though. If the doctor has to do it, I'm still filming grin

ellenanora5 Fri 10-Jun-16 20:16:57

That is very impressive, how is it now DoubleNegative, bigger I hope grin

Did you get any filming done

Thespottedzebra, your post made me laugh, "it's fine if she vomits" grin grin
