Unidentified Spider Bite

Here's an email from Kim who has been bitten on the hand. Kim has seen 4 doctors now, the best they can do is call it a brown recluse.

Here's the details, the photos are not that good unfortunately but if anyone has any ideas on what her bite might be please email: tahoetumbaga@sbcglobal.net

Spider Bite almost 3 weeks after initial bite, infection spread all over hand including thumb which you can still see in one of the pics. Infection spread to the blood stream causing high fever, lethargy, vomiting, pain, burning, and confusion. Infection while clearing at the bite site itself continues to manifest itself in breakouts of sores similar in nature to impetigo on the face. Patient has been tested for staph infections, herpes etc. all tests were negative. Infection is persistant despite repeated courses of steriods, anti-inflamitories, and anti-biotics. Bite occured in Northern California in the sierra mountains. Would not rule out species from other areas as patient was cleaning out storage boxes from all over the USA. If anyone has any idea what we are dealing with, please email.
