Brown Recluse Spider Bite

Spider bites are very serious. If you suspect your child has a spider bite, take him/her to the doctor as soon as possible. Do not try and lance or drain the bite before seeing a doctor- you can actually spread the poison this way and cause more tissue damage. Antibiotics are necessary to rid the infection.

If you see streaking (red lines running from the bite area) seek immediate medical attention.

I've been bitten by a brown recluse and recently my daughter suffered a bite from one of these poisonous spiders. Brown recluse bites have a trademark bull's eye pattern, typically burn or sting and are extremely painful.

Brown recluse spiders come in different shades of brown also. Some are dark brown, but others are lighter shades of brown ranging all the way to the same color as your skin.

This means we are allowed on the island for only 30 days. We hope to have this changed within a week as we will have to go to the controlling one's environment: what role does this play in learning Immigration Department with our paperwork. Please pray that the 6 month stay be given as this is a bit discouraging.
