Spider Bites - Symptoms And It's Home Treatment
The bites of spiders can be poisonous and painful. However, most spiders are not big enough to cause serious harm. Infants, older adults, and people of any age who have allergies are at greatest risk of having more serious reactions.
Two types of spider-the black widow and the brown recluse-are more poisonous than most and can cause a serious reaction.
Black widow spiders generally live in trash, closets, attics, woodpiles, garages and other dark places. They are found throughout California, especially in the warmer regions such as the Central Valley and Southern California. Only the female spider is dangerous to humans. The bite of the black widow spider can cause abdominal pain similar to that of appendicitis, spastic muscle contractions, and localized tissue death. In about 4 percent of cases, black widow bites lead to anaphylactic shock and death. This spider has a black body with a red hourglass shape on the main body segment.
Brown Recluse Spider bites can occur at any time of the year- spring, summer, winter or fall. This is because they live in the home and are not affected by the cold. Adult Brown Recluse spiders are yellowish-tan to dark brown. The most distinguishing mark on a Brown Recluse spider is the presence of a dark brown or black violin or fiddle on its back with the violin's "neck" pointing toward the rear of its body. For this reason, they are sometimes called "violin spiders" or "fiddleback spiders". Both male and female spiders are similar in appearance and are equally venomous. Brown Recluse Spiders are usually 1 inch or larger in size, including the legs. They can grow as large as almost 3 inches. Young Brown Recluse spiders are smaller and somewhat lighter in color.
The venom of the brown recluse spider usually creates a blister encircled by red and white rings. This "bull's-eye" appearance is used to distinguish it from other spider bites. Death from this type of bite is even more rare than from black widow bites.
Symptoms of Spider bites
However, a bite from a poisonous spider may produce a wide variety of symptoms, including intense pain, numbness, redness, and swelling in the affected area, as well as generalized convulsions, difficulty breathing, dizziness, fever or chills, headache, impaired speech, itching, joint pain, muscle spasms, muscular cramping, nausea, stiffness, sweating, vomiting, and weakness.
