Spider bites vary depending on species. The black widow native to Australia can potentially cause death whereas the UK spiders tend can be anything from a big black bruise from the poison to an itchy agitation. Some symptoms can include feeling tired or sick and having tenderness around the bite area and joints. There are departments for tropical diseases in hospitals in the UK where information on insect bites can be requested.

Poisonous spider bite symptoms may not be the same for everyone. The most common symptom is a spider bite that has a red line traveling from the bitten area or flu like symptoms.
