spider bite, when to seek medical help

Report as

Depends on what spider it was. But if you don't know, then I would suggest you go to the doctor immediately just to be safe.

It is good to seek medication attention as soon as possible after noticing a spider bite. This is particularly essential if the individual is very young or elderly. Sometimes spider bite treatment may or may not be essential; this will depend on the type of spider that did the biting.

Never. Soak the affected, infected area in a bleach-lemon juice-salt-ammonia mixture

If it is red..take a pen and draw around the redness. If after time the redness spreads outside the pen markings/circle...see a doc. I waited too late and it got pretty serious. It ended up eating through everything down to the bone and a year later it has healed but the leg has a permanent dent and is still black. Don't wait if you're sure it's a spider bite. They are also know to cause staph due to the wound being a puncture wound.

If it's looks like a bullseye that might be from the brown recluse spider. Found in the souther and Midwest states. That's a bad bite, eats away at your skin.
