How long do you have if a Brown Recluse spider bites you?

my uncle got bit by 1 on his butt cheeks. he was fine . he just went to the hospital like a day later... he diddnt really wanna talk about it lol

Mrs. Mad Maddy
Brown Recluse spiders only kill 1.5% of time but the bites can be very nasty eating away the soft tissue up to 10 inches in extreme cases. They are not typically very aggressive though

i dont think it kills you, it just rots your flesh away in the spot it bites. So it depends on how much flesh you prefer having in the spot you got bit.

While their bite is painful, it is rarely fatal! It will kill the cells around the area of the bite & rot away the flesh. The area will swell to almost 4 times the normal size & become discolored. Still seek medical attention to ensure any infection s caught before it spreads to other parts of the blood stream!

A while! But you need to get into the doctor to start on antibiotics because the poison will just continue to eat away at the flesh where the bite is at. I've seen some pretty nasty scars from these spiders.

Get to the doctor now. The poison is eating away at your flesh & muscle causing permanent damage. Don't put it off. Go NOW. I know because it happened to me.

actually it all depends on the person my mom was bit about 2 years ago but it was about 1 and a half days before it affected her she almost lost her hand so don't wait see a doctor asap

If you think you have been bitten by a brown recluse spider, then you should be seen by your doctor that day. If possible, bring the spider in question with you to your doctor’s office. Identification of the spider is very helpful in making the correct diagnosis.

If you are unable to be seen by your doctor that day, you should seek care at your hospital's Emergency Department.

Brown Recluse Bite Symptoms
Brown recluse spider bites often go unnoticed initially because they are usually painless bites. Occasionally, some minor burning that feels like a bee is noticed at the time of the bite. Symptoms usually develop 2-8 hours after a bite. Keep in mind that most bites cause little tissue destruction.
Victims may experience these symptoms:
Severe pain at bite site after about 4 hours
Severe itching
Myalgias (muscle pain)
Initially the bite site is mildly red and upon close inspection may reveal fang marks. Within a few hours, the redness gives way to pallor with a red ring surrounding the area, or a "bull's-eye" appearance. The lesion will often appear to flow downhill over the course of many hours. The center area will then often blister, which over 12-48 hours can sink, turning bluish then black as this area of tissue dies. The wound can appear like the following:
Bull's-eye appearance (common) (Note: If you live in an area where Lyme disease is common (Northeastern states), then this type of lesion is more likely caused by tick-borne Lyme disease than a brown recluse spider bite.)
Blistering (common)
Necrosis (death) of skin and subcutaneous fat (less common)
Severe destructive necrotic lesions with deep wide borders (rare)

Apply ice to decrease pain and swelling.
Elevate area if possible above the level of your heart.
Wash the area thoroughly with cool water and mild soap.
Avoid any strenuous activity because this can spread the spider’s venom in your skin.
Use Ibuprofen (Advil), Naproxen (Aleve or Naprosyn), or other anti-inflammatories for pain relief.

Do not place any heat to the area. This will accelerate tissue destruction.
Do not apply any steroid creams to the area such as Hydrocortisone cream.
Do not attempt to remove the spider venom with suction devices or cut out the affected tissue.
Do not apply electricity to the area. Anecdotal reports of high voltage electrotherapy from common stun guns have never been shown to be effective in any scientific studies. This can also cause secondary burns and deepen tissue destruction.
There is no antivenom available in the United States to counteract the poisonous venom of the brown recluse spider. Controversial therapies include steroids and the drug Dapsone (Avlosulfon). These are often reserved for people with severe systemic disease (such as certain types of anemia, blood clotting problems, and kidney failure). The therapies have little proven benefit.
follow-up with your doctor because most wounds will need to be checked daily for at least 3-4 days. Necrotic lesions will need close follow-up. The doctor may carefully remove dead tissue in necrotic areas to reduce secondary bacterial infections.

Brown recluse bites can kill small children. Usual first symptoms include high fever. Bite is not that painful, might not notice until poison oozes out of bite area. Fever can begin within the hour of being bitten.
