If you have or have had a rash like this, run to your doctor - it's the first sign of lyme disease. I had two bites like this last summer and shrugged them off as spider bites. Now I'm so incredibly fatigued and achey....I'm so glad I figured this out. Now for some treatment!
Redbacks are considered one of the most dangerous species of spider in Australia. The redback spider has a neurotoxic venom that is toxic to humans with bites causing severe pain, often for over 24 hours. An antivenom is commercially available, and since its introduction in 1956 there have been no deaths due to Redback bites.
