British actor Stephen Fry sought medical attention on Friday (22Mar13) for a spider bite.

The St. Trinian's star sustained the injury earlier this week (begs18Mar13) and he is now on a 10-day course of antibiotics to treat the ailment.

In a series of posts on his Twitter.com page before his doctor's appointment, Fry wrote, "Bite mark now hot and huge. Shall have my spider bite looked at it (in) case it's a Brown Recluse spider and I get necrosis and ulceration, eew."

Returning to the site after the consultation, the star added, "Heavens: antihistamine cream, hydrocortisone and a ten day course of antibiotics - all for a little nip from an incy wincy spider."
