So a few days ago I was enjoying myself in a park but then found 4 spider bites on me. Two have gotten red and puffy and swelled up about 3 in. across. I'm starting to get a little concerned, but I don't know how serious spider bites may or may not be. I'd much rather not have to go to a doctor. I don't know what they would do anyway.
Do they go away on their own like mosquito bites do? Or is there something I can do to help my body heal from them?
Any advice or direction would be really appreciated. Thanks! :)
Thank you! That is helpful.
I'm thinking that it might actually be a little infected. Do you have an idea of what I might do for something like that?
Go see the doctor asap. Personally I wouldn't take chances with spider bites. Ya I hate docs too but at least you can rule out if it's serious or not and have peace of mind.
Yeah, I think you're right. I'm gonna see a doc this afternoon. seeing as how it looks now, I think it's better to be safe than sorry. ah! I hope he doesn't say i need antibiotics. :(
but I suppose, since changing to lfrv, my body will hopefully be better able to heal from the ill effects of meds.
If it's getting infected you could put any manner of antiseptic on it. hydrogen peroxide is a good, safe one. completely natural biodegradable etc.
