Pictures of brown recluse spider bite suggest I have one. What do I do?

See doc: The brown recluse (loxoceles reclusa) can cause a variety of symptoms after a bite, however, a lot of the time, the bite is minor. If the area is becoming painful, oozing, blistering, or necrotic (black dead tissue), or if you have any systemic signs like nausea, vomiting, fevers, muscle pain or other problems, then you should see a physician asap. ...Read more

Do a lot of people get brown recluse spider bites?

Not many: Brown recluse spiders are mostly in the midwest, usually in basements and hidden areas. They are not aggressive but will bite if disturbed. Most spider bites are by other species. Look for the fiddle pattern on the spider. Bites are rare but need serious attention as they lead to a persistent necrosis which can last for months. ...Read more

Could there be a doctor in the house that knows anything about treatment for brown recluse spider bites?

Several treatments: Recluse bite treatment ranges from essentially local care with cleaning and topical antibiotic ointment to taking oral antibiotics to requiring surgical treatment, hyperbaric oxygen treatment and other more aggressive treatments. There are degrees of envenomation and local tissue response. If you are concerned or if in a critical location (face, genitals, around eye, etc) see md immediately. ...Read more

What are the consequences of brown recluse spider bite in a child?

Tissue death: Brown recluse venom causes the tissue it touches to die, resulting first in the classic "red, white, and blue" sore, and then a painful ulceration of the skin. This can be very serious. See a doctor right away. ...Read more

How do people treat brown recluse spider bite?

NOT surgery: The drug Dapsone is often advocated, but there is no firm evidence that it helps. Nitroglycerine patches may be effective; brown recluse venom constricts blood vessels and Nitroglycerin dilates them, but again, no proof that it helps. Surgery is ineffective and may actually worsen the outcome. ...Read more
