What treatment at home can be done for black widow spider bite? Which antibiotic is best?

Spider Bite

Widowed
Treatment for serious reactions to a black widow spider's bite will be beyond the scope of most medical offices and urgent care centers. Pain relief may require the use of narcotics and antivenin (antitoxin to counteract the effects of the spider venom).

what is the treatment for spider bite?

Time

Allergies
Most spider bites cause only a small local allergic reaction. If this is all it is some anitbiotic ointment a bandaid and time (1 to 2 days) and it should be fine. If it looks like it is getting infected ( increasing redness, pain or not improving) you should see your doctor. Only a small minority of spider bites cause infection or serious skin injury.

treatment for mosquito bite on infant

Nothing specific

Baby
If the infant is not uncomfortable no specific treatment is indicated. If the baby tends to get large local reactions to insect bites ice should be put on the bite ASAP. Benadryl by mouth can also be given for extreme swelling or itchiness as well as a low dose cortisone cream.

What should I do for treatment if any of hobo spider bite?

Depends on symptoms

Open-uri20121011-17846-69x039
Some sources say a hobo spider bite is like a typical bug bite while other sources say there are bigger symptoms and some dead skin at the bite site (like with a brown recluse). Some sources believe there are too many cases of mistaken identity with hobo spiders, so it's not known if real hobo spider bites are that bad at all. A doctor can evaluate, if the bite is any worse than a simple bug bite.

Dr. Joel Gallant answered:

Can you tell me the best OTC treatment for mosquito bites? Thank you.

Anti-itching meds

Antihistamine
You can't "treat" mosquito bites, but you can treat the itching they cause. Topical antihistamines can help. Oral antihistamines will also reduce itching. In more severe cases, you can apply topical steroids such as hydrocortisone or triamcinolone.
