Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am board certified and I have 40 years of patient experience. I will be happy to help you today. I'm sorry to hear that you have non-healing bites. Since you are getting symptoms that possibly could be caused by the venom of a spider bite you need to be evaluated now. You don't mention any rash, but the bites could also be from a tick (Rocky Mountain Spotted fever). Go to an Urgent Care Facility now to be evaluated and treated.

I am available to answer any additional questions you may have. Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance. I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you
