First Aid Treatments : How to Treat a Spider Bite


You know one of the common bites that occurs
across the nation and across the world is that of a household and common spider. Hi
I’m Captain Joe Bruni and what I’m going to talk about is how to treat the common spider
bite. It may be readily available to identify what type of spider has caused the bite injury.
It may be a harmless spider, or it may be a poisonous spider. Identification of the
spider would be key and important in helping to determine treatment. Wash the spider bite
area with soap and water and apply some type of ice or cold compress to reduce swelling,
while at the same time monitoring the area for signs that it’s been a poisonous spider
bite. Poisonous spiders will have redness and swelling along with possible pustules
forming or black and blue or purplish areas forming and obvious signs of reddening and
increased infection starting to set in. If this occurs, apply some type of constriction
type of bandage above the bite site injury to reduce and slow down blood flow to this
area. Remembering not to eliminate it completely. And then seek medical attention if it’s in
fact that of a poisonous spider. I’m Captain Joe Bruni, stay safe and we will see you next
time.
