Either way, you need to see a doctor immediately. The effects of this kind of spider bite can be fatal, and leaving it too long could cause your body some incredibly damage. So don’t dwell on the Internet, see your doctor today and see what they can do.
What Symptoms Can I Look Forward To?
You should have a puss filled pimple in the area that you have button, and the red ring around the bite should be getting bigger. You will soon start getting blurred vision and cramps in your stomach. These are generally the symptoms of a serious bite, as I mentioned, and hence you’re going to need some treatment.
What Can I Do To Ease The Pain?
The pain that actually comes from the bite can also be treated with over-the-counter pain medications. Hot and cold compresses in the mean time can also help you ease the pain, until you get to the hospital. You will no doubt experience more severe symptoms, however, and if this occurs then narcotic pain medications and muscle relaxers will eventually be provided to you. Antivenins can also be administered to help you after you have suffered the bite.
What Happens Now?
If you are not treated with antivenin, the symptoms could persist for a number of days, and on occasion can be life threatening. If the antivenin is used, however, then you will be monitored for effects that the medication may have. This is because the medication is actually made from horse serum. It can also cause very bad allergic reactions in some people. So don’t chance it - go and see your doctor as soon as possible and they will be able to reduce the pain and stop you from suffering incredibly severe symptoms of the bite.
