Our expert says:
This type of spider bite usually causes necrosis as a long term effect and is not known to cause systemic long term illness. The hemolytic toxin is short acting and I therefore, suggest that you reconsult your GP to determine if your symptoms are maybe due to something else. Chronic headaches are always a worrying symptom and should be investigated thoroughly. Your weight loss is also a concern and as there are a multitude of possibilities, you will have to consult your doctor.
