21-year-old Australian Dylan Thomas was vacationing in Bali when he noticed a weird, two-inch red line on his stomach. “It was as if someone had scratched me with the tip of a knife,” he said. Later that evening, the trail had moved up his chest about three inches higher. Concerned, he went to the doctor, who told him it was a small insect bite, no big deal, and gave him some cream. Then blisters started forming along the line.“That’s when it became painful, it was a searing burn,” he said.
He finally saw a dermatologist on Monday, who told him that it was something out of the ordinary.
(*a scream starts to rise in my throat*)….
Doctors extracted a TROPICAL SPIDER that had BURROWED ITSELF into the scar from Dylan’s recent appendix removal.
From NT News:
“It was a bit bigger than the size of a match head,” he said.
He has now earnt himself the nickname Spider-man. “It takes a lot to deter me, but I do feel violated. It was a very bizarre experience just to know something like that was in my body for a couple of days,” Dylan said. The doctors put the spider in a container and took it away for testing. Dylan will be informed next week as to what kind of spider made home in his body for three days.
