Ah! Freaky!

I've been bitten by a white spider before - not the same thing, but it bit me inside my ear and made it swell up pretty good. My friend gave me a facial, and that helped! Mostly to calm me down after having a big fat spider in my ear, lol...

But, just a general pain and nerve-calming management trick - you could try giving yourself a warm foot bath, or a hand bath. I've got chronic pain, and I loooove foot baths - best strategy I've found!

Hope you feel better - sorry, yikes!

Yes, we get white tail spiders regularly in our house this time of year. Been bitten a few times. Main thing is do not scratch the area, it starts itching as it heals, if you scratch then the cellulitis spreads and makes everything worse. Use cold compresses to stop the pain and itching (e.g. bag of frozen peas wrapped in a towel, but not wet). Watch out for a red line travelling from the sore. This happened to me and I had to get intravenous antibiotics immediately. I also felt ill with it and tired. I ended with purple scars where the bites were, takes months to fade. Main thing is leave the wound to heal...no scratching or picking at it or it will spread. You must also keep the area dry, put plastic over the area while showering sealed with bandaid strips. For the pain I took paracetamol, check with your doctor/pharmacist what is suitable for you. The pain luckily doesn't last too long. You will find the itching the worst, but don't put creams on it until the area is fully healed, you need to keep it dry. If the itching gets really bad, ask your doctor for antihistamine tablets if they are suitable for you. Hope you get better soon.

I haven't but I have also never been to Austrailia either. I would however apply ice, use some form of antiseptic, and wash the site. I would also see a doctor who might prescribe and antihistamine, analgesia, oral steroid, or topical steroid for swelling and itching
