Treating Brown Recluse Spider Bite Naturally
“Mommy, my leg hurts!”
It was seven in the morning. My little boy, seven years old, had just come out of bed, and complained of a sore on his leg. I unzipped his footed pajamas, and found a tiny clear blister on his lower leg.
I will be honest. Even though the blister was small, my nurse gear kicked in immediately when I saw the hazy circle surrounding the blister, then the red ring. With the pain, the blister, and the concentric rings, I began right away to suspect a spider bite. I believe that God put this in my mind, so that we could snap into action quickly, because my mind would not normally go right away to spider bite on seeing such a small bump.
Brown Recluse Bite
Once I began to suspect a spider bite, I assumed it would be the Brown Recluse. We had a neighbor who had also been bitten by a Brown Recluse just the month or so before, so I immediately called her. She came over right away to look at the bite. By that time, the blister had already grown, maybe to the size of half a pencil eraser, but was still clear. She told me that the symptoms sounded like when she got bit, but that hers had turned cloudy, so watch for that. In her case, she had gone to the ER, but while treated with antibiotics for possible secondary infections, they really had no specific kind of treatment for a Brown Recluse Spider bite. She had to seek out her own treatment options outside of the medical community.
As soon as I saw the blister, we put on a charcoal poultice.
If you do not know what a poultice is, please see this post. It also shows you step by step, how to make a good activated charcoal poultice.
So, what’s the charcoal for anyway?
