Spider Bite Symptoms

Luckily in the US there are only two spiders that have poisonous bites. The Black Widow Spider and the Brown Recluse Spider are both dangerous spiders but the classic symptoms of their bites are different. You need to take a look at the spider bite symptoms so that you can seek medical attention when you or a member of your family is bitten and are showing spider bite symptoms.

Both the brown recluse spider and the black widow spider like warm places. They also prefer to hide in dark locations. They like dry places that are somewhat littered with lots of hiding places such as under the sink, under the house, in woodpiles and even in closets.

The bite of the black widow spider is the most dangerous of the spider bites. The classic black widow spider bite symptoms are its bite that feels like a pinprick and the small red mark and small swelling that occurs right after the bite. After just a few hours, as the venom acts in your system, the spider bite symptoms become even worse. Stiffness and extreme pain begins to set in and can be accompanied with a high fever, chills, nausea and severe pain in the abdomen.

The brown recluse spider bite symptoms are different. The first symptoms that appear are the sting of the bite accompanied with intense pain. Soon a blister filled with fluid will form at the site. Other brown recluse spider bite symptoms may be fever, rash, and listlessness.

It's important to seek treatment if you or a family member is suffering from spider bite symptoms. It's important because sometimes the symptoms can make a turn for the worse
