It has been 30 years since my spider bite on my face. I was bit 15 times in a spiral pattern. Mine reoccurs once or twice a year. Too much sun will bring it on every time. Occasionally I can remove what looks like a stinger and when I do it never comes back in that spot. I have never had anyone that had an answer. I for one would love it.

Same situation.  Seventeen years ago, spider bite on palm and base of thumb.  Reactivited last night, extreme itch followed by angry red raised spots, itchy and sore about size of 5 cent piece.  Feel unwell.  Lasts about two weeks and skin then peels off, like a dried up blister.  Happened about 5/6 times at time of stress.  Doctors cannot understand it.
