What happens when a stone spider bites you?
I was bitten by a stone spider 2 weeks ago. It felt as though i was being stung. The sting was painful perhaps 4 on a scale 1-10. Three bites in a row beofre I managed to brush it off. Then nothing until that evening (around 7 hours later) - hugely itchy - like veyr bad mosqituo itching. Around 7 on a scale. hree days of itch. Now left with red weals (around 2 cm sqare) with raised bit mark off centre in each. No longer itchy. Looks as though they may scar or leave residual mark - they are pronounced. The spider got trapped around my knee under trousers while walking on coastal path in Cornwall.

Answer . vary depending upon the type of spider doing the biting. Some are serious and require medical attention, while others are harmless. When it doubt, get checked out.. Answer . There are some certain types of spiders such as black widow, brown recluse, tarantulas and those type of spiders… which can be very serious if your bitten by. The best idea is to make sure that you can try and catch it for proper identification through the hospital, so that they are able to treat with antivenom or other necessary products to reverse the problem of the bite. Also, make sure that you keep the person who has been bitten very calm, as excitement could cause the venom to spread throughout the body. ( Full Answer )
A Stone Spider is a species of spider under the genus of Drassodes. Its scientific name is Drassodes lapidosus. The Stone Spider is found in Europe, North Africa and much of Asia and Japan. It is a nocturnal hunter that spends the day light hours in a silken retreat built under loose bark, gravel …or stones. The Stone Spider's size depends on it's sex with the female being generally bigger than the male. The female of the species is normally around 18 millimetres big, whereas the male is only 12 millimetres. The males are normally only found from April to November, but the females are found all year round. This species of spider does not spin a web. It is a light brown colour with a low, silky-brown carapace. The jaws are a darker colour and the legs are generally paler than the body. They have two rows of eight eyes that are a silvery colour. The abdomen is elongated and relatively slender in appearance. They were first discovered in the UK in 1851. Their bite is not known to be deadly and will generally cause no more than a red mark.

Yes a spider does bite and be careful because some spiders can kill you even the first time they bite you.
Well if I got a spider bite from not a poisonous spider i would put alcohol on it or apple cider vinegar. If it was a poisonous spider then I would say go to the doctor for some prescription medicine or cream and your bite needs lots of prayer.
I was bitten by a black widow spider several years ago, when I was on a camping trip. It bit me on the neck. The spider was killed and taken (along with me0 to the ranger station. Where the spider was identified ans I was taken to the nearest hospital. My neck swelled up and I had flu like symptoms …for about a week and then I was OK. I had an antivenon injection at the hospital. I thought I was going to die. The doctor told me that only the very young, old or weak and ill people died from the bite. I was very fit and healthy at the time. Hope this answers someone's questiom. It is not a death sentence to be bitten by a black widow, but get to a hospital. ( Full Answer )
It depends on the type of spider. A bite from a black widow or recluse spider - of course - would be much more harmful than a common gray house spider. In any case, any kind of spider bite can be nasty. Try to identify what type of spider it might have been, and keep a close eye on the wound. Wash i…t, and use an antiseptic. However, if there is any questions or concerns, I would see a doctor immediately. I have seen spider bites that have progressed and caused very bad side-effects. In addition, never let any bite - whether animal or insect - go untreated, in terms of cleansing, and use of antiseptics ( Full Answer )
I heard that they are aggressive toward each other but not humans. I have not been bitten by one either and there are tons of them in our car port.
The only way to tell for certain is to trap the spider and show it to someone who knows their arachnidae . You can't tell by the bite mark or the toxins (although in extreme cases you may be able to guess).. That said, if you don't have the animal, you can still treat the injury. See related sites… on this question. ( Full Answer )
Determine the type of spider. Call 911 if it is poisonous. Place the bitten area BELOW the heart to slow the blood movement coming from the area. Remove restricting clothing as swelling may occur. DO NOT attempt to suck out the venom.
You will have pain and swelling around the area of the bite, and should seek medical care in case you need antibiotics. Untreated bites may lead to blood poisoning.
All spiders have at least some venom in their bite. If you get a bite, you will usually see a small pimple like bump on your skin. There is no reason to be alarmed unless you start feeling dizzy, sick to stomach, throat closing, severe pain at the bite that radiates to another part of your body. If …any of these occur seek prompt medical attention. ( Full Answer )
If a white tip spider bit you, then you would go to the emergency room. That is the same for kittens, cats, puppies and dogs. They should go to the vets. There is a chance they have been poisoned and need to be treated.
Well, I am unsure though, I think your eye would swell up and hurt very bad.
Assuming the spider didnt die himself from it, its most likely radiation poison that will probably give you cancer or kill you pretty quickly. Although there are stories of a boy been bitten by one and gaining superhuman powers but that's a one in a million chance
I had a spider bite last summer. Although I cleaned it thoroughly, it got very ugly looking. It was at the base of my index finger in the web...I likely gripped a handle and the spider was underneath. The next day, it swelled and looked like several blisters, but they were hard. I went to the docto…r and she told me there was NOTHING you can do for a spider bite except keep it clean. She said the toxin has already killed the skin. It took a couple of weeks, but the blister-like swelling subsided and there is no scarring or other indication at the wound site. ( Full Answer )
if you are that stupid then you should lock yourself away so the world does not have to suffer ur ignorance.
Even though the spider had been altered by a gamma source of some sort, it was still a spider. It was pure instinct. I must have felt threatened for some reason.
You turn in to Spider man. Soon you could climb walls, make webs come out of your hands by doing the I love you sign, and you get to wear tights
Depends, if its venomous then yes and you would have to have it seen to and if it isn't then no.
The Brown Recluse Spider has the strongest venom. It can cause significant cutaneous injury with tissue loss and necrosis. When you see a dark solid spot on the skin like it is very dry, you are problably looking at an necrosis. Its a very bad thing. It will not kill your pig but it will turn bad fo…r consumption. The Back Widow Spider can inflict a painful bite which can be fatal. If your pig survives the bite, again it will turn no good to eat. ( Full Answer )
I must say that this is the first time I've ever heard anybody who was happy to be bitten by a spider. For most people, it is not that good of an experience.
yes i got bit by one today but they are not venomous or deadly just clean the sore and it should be ok
Spiders don't bite... they just crawl up your legs. Well that's in England anyway. Some are quite deadly animals though. Like ones in America they could be quite dangerous. :)
Yes, there are some spiders in the Southern USA that will bite people. The Brown Recluse spider is probably the best known for its venom. It won't actually attack people, but it will get into your house and hide in places you don't expect, like shoes and showers, and when threatened will bite. Altho…ugh small in size, the venom causes a paralysis and eventual rigamortis of the flesh. This can be hugely toxic if not treated as soon as possible. ( Full Answer )
It really depends on what kind of a spider has bitten you. If you can capture the spider that bit you, or kill the spider without damaging its body, your doctor can check what kind it is. In the United States, only the Black Widow spiders can kill human beings, and then usually only children or i…nfirm adults. So if you brought in the body of one of these spiders, your doctor would know exactly what to do. There is even an antivenom for these bites that can be used if the bite is bad enough. If you know you have been bitten by a Black Widow, it would be best to see a doctor fairly promptly. The younger the patient, the more important it would be to get to the doctor promptly. If you are in Australia you probably know what the Sydney Funnel Web spider looks like, and if you are in S. America you probably know what Phoneutria (armed) spiders look like. They are both hard to miss. The only other U.S. spider that is a major problem is the Brown Recluse. These spiders are sort of "anonymous-looking," i.e., they are brown, medium sided, etc., like many harmless spiders. So it would really help to have the culprit in hand if that is what bit you. Their bites cause local tissue death, an effect that is manifested relatively slowly, so knowing that you were bitten by this particular kind of spider could be very useful in guiding treatment before any severe symptoms developed. (Spiders in the same genus occur in S. America and can be more dangerous.) Spiders can best be caught by putting a drinking glass down over them and then sliding a 3 x 5 card under the edge of the glass, turning it glass right side up, and taping some kind of cover on the glass. The bites of other spider may be painful (about like a bee sting), but the pain will go away. The only big thing to worry about would be the same kind of shock that some people get from an allergic reaction to bee stings. If somebody is going into shock it is clear that they need to be seen immediately. Some bites are suspected of introducing germs into the wound. Spider fangs are sharper and thinner than hypodermic needles, so it may be useless to apply antiseptics since the wounds will seal as soon as the fangs are withdrawn, but it would not hurt anything to dab on some Isodine (buffered iodine) or other good antiseptic. An ice cube wrapped in a wash cloth and held on the wound might make you feel better, and it also might let the body deal with the venom bit by bit instead of all at once. I think that treatment is useful for bee stings. It has been a long time since I have been bitten by a spider (my fault) even though I study them and "play with them" frequently, but I think that is what I did the last time I pinched a spider and got a defensive bite. If you are only noticing local pain, then probably all you need to do is to clean the wound, treat the symptoms, etc. If your whole body is reacting somehow (e.g., cramps), then it would be safest to get medical help. If the local wound seems to be getting worse instead of getting better, it probably would be a good idea to be seen by a doctor too. ( Full Answer )
Yes scorpions do bite and the bites sting you but spiders as far as i know normally don't but poisonous ones of course do Thanks Gaurang
Because bites from widow spiders and brown spiders require different treatments, capturing and identifying the spider helps to establish diagnosis.
No spider bite should be ignored. The antidote for severe widow spider bites is a substance called antivenin, which contains antibodies taken from the blood serum of horses injected with spider venom. Doctors exercise caution.
It really depends on what spider bit you. If it is a poisonous spider, get it checked out immedietly, however if it is just a normal spider that has bit you, but the bite hasn't gone away after a week or so, I recommend getting it checked out by a doctor just to make sure it hasn't got infected beca…use that could be more serious that the bite itself but can be cured with a simple injection or cream. ( Full Answer )
No, unless it is bleeding. The only reason you cover a wound is to keep it from getting infected, and it's not going to get infected if the skin isn't punctured completely, which would result in bleeding.
Yes, they bite. Some people may have allergic reactions to their bite. Most bites from the spider occur at night, or when its trapped in clothing....
You can. Peroxide is probably not going to help a whole lot with the "spider bite" part, but it could help keep the wound from becoming infected.
it depends on the person. they are a non-toxic spider, but some people (including myself) experience localized swelling, sometimes causing the skin to break open because of an allergic reaction. others may experience nausea, or dizziness.
no it will just come up with a bite in comparison to us humans it will be a insect bite. but obviously if it was a venomous spider it would probably kill it
Can I see a photo of spider bites? Well, I have perfectly good eyes, I could see the photo if you showed me one. Was that your question??
Well, according to a study conducted by Columbia University scientists in 1956, popping a spider bite opens your epidermis to all the germs, bacteria, and magical dust in the air surrounding you. If you live in a sterile bubble, you will probably be alright--although patients who were treated orally… with the venom of Madagascar vampire snails died immediately in those bubbles. If you are a normal human, you might as well set yourself on fire, because guess what: you have AIDS. Sorry. ( Full Answer )
Yes, a garden spider can bite a human, but it will not harm the human.
firstly, you need to act quickly as the poison from the spider will eventully get into your blood and cause an infection/posion your blood which is called celulitis. To prevent this from happening you need to get an ice packet or frozens peas and wrap them in a tea towl and place it on the bite so i…t will stop it from being inflamed. Then take an antichectimine, this will prevent an ilergic reaction. And will eventully stop the posion from spreading But if this does not work and gets any bigger, visit your GP and ask for antibiotix if you have an infection. ( Full Answer )
Spider bites generally cause massave uncontrolable erections. the only way to make the boner go away is to punch your penis.
IF it's not poisonous and the person is not allergic to it, absolutely nothing besides leaving a bite mark. If not sure about poison, I suggest you google the suspicious aspects, like bright colors, fuzzy skin, and patterns. Good luck!
you need to go to the doctor and see what he/she said... You may have to go to the hospital crust me or call 911! i look on here and then i said i got it i will make an answer today so now you now
It really depends on the severity and type of bite. It can range from no ill effects at all, to death.
Yes, spiders do have venom; different species vary tremendously in the toxicity of that venom. Spiders eat mainly insects and most are not dangerous to people, but there are a few species whose bite is dangerous to people.
"do spider bites hurt"well it all depends on the person.how much pain they can actually take nd if u really look good with them.it would really just feel lke an ant bite or a small nutthing more.so if u do want a spider bite or snake bite think of how much pain u can take nd if ur going to keep up w…ith the cleaning. ( Full Answer )
Because if you just got bitten, some spiders have venom and it may sting unexpectedly.
Well someone Asked if You Get super powers when Get a spider biteand the website answered that You can Get super powers when you Geta spiser bite from a tiger spider
A spider bite will remain in one area on the body, for instance the right leg. However, the size of the bite can expand dramatically depending upon the species of spider that made the bite. Some spiders have toxins or venoms in their bite that can become systemic - this would be a medical emergency …that needs to be addressed immediately. ( Full Answer )
Having been bitten, it is pretty painful. If you allergic to bees/wasps, I recommend you don't try to handle spiders as the chances are you're allergic to them too.
Most likely the bite will just swell up. I don't know of a spider that when it bites you, the bite is hard...
funny you ask, yes it does help. got some on four on my arm rightnow... but yes it helps, and it burns for a little, but it's notthat bad. they'll go away faster
