Hey Mopus, better rethink that immune system thing. Frequently, especially with insect bites, it works just the opposite.
Minor problem, minor problem, no problem, no problem, and out of the blue, your system goes into overdrive vapor-lock!
Ask your doctor. I'm not joking, and the brown recluse normally does such tissue damage, rotting out masses, and there's really little the doctors
Be real careful, man.
I've been bitten three times by snakes - one rattler, one moccasin, and the other was in Vietnam in the dark, but fortunately, it was a hemotoxic
snake and my arm only got about four times normal size.
To tell the truth, that last SOB burned just as much as the first two!
