Comments & ID Thoughts
I stepped on this little guy in my kitchen. I immediately felt pain and toe swelling. I am in Nashville, TN. My husband had been outside building a fire in the wood stove (outside on the back porch) off the kitchen today.

Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 This looks like a male Common House Spider, Parasteatoda tepidariorum.
Thank you so much for easing my mind. My vision is not that great and I truly needed your assistance.
Is it normal to blister with the bite?
I don’t know what would be typical, everyone’s immune system is different. Of course if you have any symptoms that cause concern see a doctor.
