  • Monitor the bite for a couple of days to keep a check on how well the symptoms are healing.
  • Try to memorize the appearance of the spider that has bitten you. This will help in the treatment plan.
  • To prevent spider bites, wear a long-sleeve shirt and pants, a hat, gloves and boots when handling stored boxes or firewood.
  • Be extra careful when cleaning out sheds, garages, basements, attics and crawl spaces.
  • Inspect and shake out gardening tools that are not in use for a while.
  • Keep spiders out of the house by installing tight-fitting screens on windows and doors.
  • Discard old boxes, clothing and other unwanted items from storage areas.
  • Remove piles of rocks from your garden area.

    1. I had 8 spider bites on my leg and they were swollen, itchy and stinging for two days. I applied the baking soda and in two hours the stinging and itching was gone. I wish I had looked you up sooner. Thank you.

  1. This article is very helpful. It was the only one of all the medical websites to actually have some information I could use.

  2. Very helpful! Thanks! I had nearly 20 spider bites on my back (which was close to impossible to reach. But, the ice and the baking soda really helped. Also, my mom said try apple cider vinegar – it really helped too! ?

  3. Yes indeed … couldn’t sleep the whole night and the ice pack and next baking soda has given a lot of relief

  4. I thank you so much. Yours is the most comprehensive of dozens of sites I’ve just pored over. I appreciate your discerning approach and am ready to start treating my skin. Gratefully, Irene

    1. My husband got a spider bite from a brown recluse 3 years ago. We were at the camp so was limited to meds. I found a potato sliced off some cut into the cut end. Over night it took all swelling out. We went dr and got antibiotic next day. It worked great. This year 2016 same thing happened so we went with the potato again and it worked. Got antibiotic next day. He said the potato cooled and soothed it also.

  5. HAVE TWO SPIDER BITES ON MY ARM
    . THEY ARE PUFFY, AND HAVE TINY WHITE HEADS. WILL TRY THE BAKING SODA.
    THE THOUGHT OF THAT BROWN SPIDER IN MY BED, HIVES ME THE CHILLS.
    BLESSINGS,
