Hi and thanks for the query,

A spider bite generally produces an acute inflammatory reaction or allergy. This shall require use of anti allergic drugs. Anti histamines are generally effective in stopping itches and swelling. Steroids, either or local or injectables could also be useful in the management process. A key aspect in the management is surveillance. This important for failure to respond or aggravation of symptoms might require other drugs to be added or an increase in the dosage of the drugs used. thanks and kind regards.
