What does a recent spider bite look like: Symptoms From Personal Reports When Do Spiders Bite?
A spider will only bite if it feels threatened. Therefore, try to avoid killing them as remember how threatening you must look to a small spider! The majority of spiders in European countries do not have fangs strong enough to penetrate human skin. However, some spiders can bite.

What Can Happen When A Spider Bites You? Bites from most spiders cause redness and irritation, but can be treated at home with cooling packs or an over the counter pain reliever to reduce swelling. The bite should be gone within seven to ten days. There are a few exceptions to spiders that do bite and these can be life threatening to humans. These are the black widow spider, brown recluse spider, funnel-web spider, red back spider and the white tail spider. These are found in Australia and the southern states of the USA. These spiders prefer warm and dry climates so look out for them in basements, attics and under sinks.

What Does A Black Widow Spider Look Like?
A black widow spider is a small, black, shiny spider with a red hourglass marking on its belly. It is about an inch long and has a marking resembling a violin on the upper part of its back. Bites from both the black widow and brown recluse spiders are dangerous to humans and require prompt emergency medical care. A black widow spider bite causes swelling, burning and redness. In some patients, anaphylactic reactions may occur after insect bites, and these may be life threatening.

And The Sydney Funnel Web Spider?
The Sydney Funnel Web is a six to seven centimetres, black, aggressive and has huge fangs. These fangs can penetrate a fingernail. The venom is highly toxic. The venom of the smaller male produces toxic five times stronger than the female. The bite is usually immediately painful and can lead to sweating, muscle twitching; severe hypertension, vomiting and can lead to unconsciousness. The pressure immobilisation technique MUST be commenced as soon as possible. Any delay risks the rapid onset of systemic symptoms. There have been no reports of deaths when effective first aid had been conducted. Consult this website if you are unsure of what to do: www.health.qld.gov.au/poisonsinformationcentre/bites_stings/

I have two bites on my arm for a week. They are red with deep purple centers. About 2 inches in diameter, wit a red line running down about 2 inches. Not much itching, but painful when touched. Do you know what kind of spider bite this could be? No lumps, only slightly raised.

Spiders are commonly identified, and feared by quiet a few people, for their ability of biting human beings. Although nearly all spiders are thought to be harmless to human beings, certain spider varieties have bites which are acknowledged to be medically significant, and can make noticeable signs in human beings.

Spider bites are the biggest kind of bite, generally forming a big raised round area with a noticeable pinpoint bite mark in the centre. The can expand in size and redness for quite a few days, and tend to be quite hurting.

In nearly all cases of spider bite, the main worry is the spider's poison. Spiders basically are rapacious animals, which eat other animals for the purpose of food. In place of teeth, spiders usually have chelicerae, each with two subdivisions, the fang and the basal section.
