Woman Shares 12-Month Trial of Spider Bite Turns Into A ‘Crater’

Published

on

Recently, a woman has shared the effects of a bite from a spider known as the ‘Brown Recluse Spider’ on social media. Injuries from the spider bite have caused the victim’s skin to have holes as a result of the infection.

The effects of the bite started from a red lump and then the woman’s skin had holes with black wounds, this condition occurred after a few weeks of being bitten by the spider.

The scars from the spider bite are still visible even after a year after the bite.

The woman also uploaded a picture of the ‘Brown Recluse Spider’. A friend of the victim shared the story on Reddit.

“He saw a doctor within 45 minutes after being bitten”.

“14 days of antibiotics, three times a day. Daily treatment for the first two weeks and once a week since”.

“The spider that bit him was caught and put in a plastic zip to be shown to the doctor”.

It takes 12 months of medical treatment to treat a bite because the soft tissue damage caused by Brown Recluse spiders can take months to heal. Brown Recluse spiders are usually not known as aggressive. Although bites rarely cause death, they can cause significant “soft tissue destruction” that takes months to heal.

This species is usually found only in South and Central America and usually grows to a length of between 6 and 20 mm (0.2 and 0.8 inches) – but they can grow larger. These spiders are also said to be the second most venomous spider in America.
