Spider bite

Spiders are generally found in corners of the house, gaps in wood, hollow places and dark places. Two types of spiders commonly found are black spider and tarantula. A tarantula is big, hairy and less poisonous, while a black spider is more poisonous.

Diagnosis of a spider bite is made by the following features.   

  1. The victim experiences severe pain locally.
  2. Redness and swelling develop at the site of the sting. Small blisters arise locally.
  3. The face, hands and legs develop swelling.
  4. Stomach cramps develop. Muscles become hard.
  5. Breathlessness and shock can develop. Death is rare.
