Spider Bites

In recent years it appears that the brown Recluse Spider has waged a war on the human race. While the Brown recluse spider is poisonous and if a bitten by the brown recluse it could cause some very serious issues. The same goes for the black widow spider, which is actually the more poisonous of the two.

Identifying a spider bite is not an easy job, unless you actually see the spider biting the victim. If someone is bitten by an insect of any type and they begin to notice that the area is swollen, red, draining, growing more and more painful, or has a ring around the bite. If any or all of this occurs, go strait to the doctors or to the emergency room at the hospital.

Many people have gone to emergency rooms in the last ten and been diagnosed with spider bites when what they actually had was MRSA. MRSA is a very dangerous and highly contagious flesh easting disease that is commonly mistaken for spider bites.

Anaphylaxis is a very serious reaction that people often have to being bitten by an insect or bee. It causes swelling of the face, throat, and tongue. Some other symptoms of Anaphylaxis are, Hives, an itchy red rash, Generalized weakness (Many sicknesses cause a person to be weak),can’t stand alone, legs trembling, wheezing, loud breathing,rattling in chest, liquid sounds when victim tries to breath, difficulty breathing (If this occurs call 911 immediately), breathing fast, not able to talk,victim sits with hands on their knees,

Some other symptoms of spider bites can include a racing heart, cold chills, stomach or leg cramps, tiredness, headache, and sweating profusely,

As far as treatment goes for spider bites antibiotics is the best way. Many people claim to have home remedies that work, but they have never been proven to work. And a spider bite requires medical attention as soon after the bite as possible.
