Hello, Rifky Ananda, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
When experiencing a spider bite, what needs to be considered is the type of spider that bites and the symptoms that arise. Spiders are poisonous or non-toxic, but if they bite they can cause symptoms such as itching, pain, swelling of the skin, redness, and accompanying symptoms that cannot be taken lightly such as dizziness, sweating, headaches, weakness, shortness of breath, nausea / vomiting, anxiety, etc. If there are accompanying symptoms, you should immediately seek medical help from a doctor.
The first treatment for spider bites is to compress the affected part with ice for 10 minutes, elevate the affected part, and clean the affected part with soap and running water to prevent further infection. If it feels painful, you can try taking paracetamol or ibuprofen to relieve it. Take it to the doctor for safety checks and to be given hypo-allergenic and / or anti-inflammatory drugs. The spider bite will usually heal in a week.
If the symptoms do not go away, or symptoms appear such as pain / redness / widespread swelling, fever, weakness, shortness of breath, palpitations, difficulty swallowing, dizziness, vomiting, you should immediately see a doctor for help.
