Non-poisonous Spider Bites: Need Treatments or Not?

Do non-poisonous spider bites need treatments?

Spider bite refers to the injury resulting from the bite of a spider. Some cases of spider bites are poisonous such as black widow spider bites and brown recluse spider bites. And some cases of spider bites are non-poisonous or less-poisonous such as home spider bites and hobo spider bites.

Although some of the cases are non-poisonous, treatments are needed, too. If bit by spiders, your skin tends to be red or swelling. Treatments will help the wound to heal fast.

If you are bit and your wound is non-poisonous, you may try to

  • Clean the wound with soap and water.
  • Elevate the bite area if it is possible.
  • Apply ice to your wound.
  • Wipe the bite area with alcohol or a cool damp cloth with water.

All these measures can help to reduce pain and swelling.
