I showed the doctor and he tried to convince me it was just a tiny thorn that had attacked my foot and NOT a giant black widow and that I most likely would not be losing the toe.
"If it was a black widow bite, it would get a big red unhappy bump, and your toe would swell, and it would feel tingly, or numb, or weird," he said to reassure me.
"But it does feel tingly, and numb, and weird!" I exclaimed, which he totally ignored.
So my prognosis is (paraphrasing) "*shrug* Soak it to draw out 'whatever is in there' and come back if gross stuff starts coming out of it."
I know he was talking about pus but all I can think of is the urban legends concerning baby spiders.
p.s. It would probably help you to know that there are actually black widows in my house. So it is not just me being completely neurotic, only partially.
