This is the aftermath of a black widow spider bite. I was bitten twice on my torso. Once the venom hit my system 3 days after the bites appeared. I sought medical attention, diagnosed and released within an hour and told to take Tylenol for the fever and drink lots of water. 3 days later my torso started turning black and the skin became very hard. I went to the hospital, and was diagnosed with a staph infection. They lanced one of the spider bites to allow the wound to drain and stuffed me full of cotton gauze. I was instructed to drain it 3 days later and come back for them to do it all over again. It has been 6 years since i put this video up in 2007. I have had 3 surgeries to repair my body from this. I am now saving up for a final procedure where they are going to go in and clean up the last remaining bit of tissue that was damaged in the whole ordeal. This was a black widow spider bite.. You are viewing the draining of an infected spider bite..
