This is not what happens in all cases. Brown recluse bites take 1 to 2 days to flare. Before that you can have it look just like the pic. I was bitten by a brown recluse and scratched it but since I have staph topically naturally I also scratched staph into the wound.
Either way go directly to the clinic tomorrow and do NOT squeeze anything.
Good luck.
