Yellow sac spider bite

I was bit by a spider about a week ago. The initial bite stung quite a bit; which led me to believe that i wasnt bit by a brown recluse. I did see the spider that bit me, and it didnt look like a brown recluse. The flesh eventually turned grey. The top layer of skin ended up bubbling up, falling off, and there was a lesion in the middle of the bite. I ended up identifying the spider as a Yellow sac spider. Since I get a LOT of traffic to this photos. I would like to mention that If you are ever bitten by a spider and anything like this happens to you, Please see a Doctor as soon as possible. The necrosis from these bites can potentially end up being very serious medical conditions which you need to take care of. I am a professional athlete and know my body much better than most people. Because of this, I know exactly when I need medical attention and when I dont. Let a trained medical expert take care of this kind of injury.
