5-Year-Old’s Bruise Turns Out to Be Poisonous Spider Bite

Summer is practically here, which means spending more time outdoors, having picnics and barbecues. It also means that kids will be playing on playgrounds, swimming in pools, and exploring nature.

Kristine Donovan noticed her 5-year-old daughter Kailyn had a small purple bruise on the back of her knee, likely from a bug bite.
