Umm... Pretty sure brown recluse spiders are... Umm.... Pretty reclusive... As in not generally found on roofs. I'm sure its possible though...

If it is a recluse bite they can be bad.

Did you bite him back?

In all seriousness, there is no anti-venom for brown recluse. It will eat away large portion of your flesh. But you do need to go to the hospital for pain meds and antibiotics.

My mom was bit twice on the stomach near her navel by a brown recluse. She had a huge crater in her stomach about the size of a grapefruit where it had eaten the flesh away. She had to go to the doctor to have it dressed every day I think it was. They packed it with this gauze stuff that was soaked in some kind of medicine. It took for ever for that thing to heal. It was Nastay!!

I thought the same thing as biscuit. Recluse spiders don't normally hang out on roofs. But you never know.

Well, I guess it's not as bad as my roommate's friend who literally had cut off his thumb in a deer skinning accident and, before deciding to put the thumb on ice and go to the hospital, posted on Facebook asking what he should do.
