Posted on Wed, 12 Dec 2018
Question: Good day, I have a spider bite on a sensitive area. The top popped from clothing rubbing against it. Will Fucidin H cream help?? Was prescribed for a bite I had a month or two ago.
Many thanks

Brief Answer:
Upload picture of the bite

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

Do you have an idea what variety of spider had bitten, like its color and size? While most spiders are non poisonous, identifying poisonous spiders like brown or black spiders is important.

There are some spiders which are venomous. I wanted to make sure that there is no delayed reaction at the bite site.

You can just put ice over the bite, take Tab Claritin and apply Fucidin cream.

Hope this answers your question and if you need more information, let me know and I shall answer precisely.
