Spider Bite Natural Remedies

10 Natural Remedies for Spider Bites

The effect of a spider bite can range from mildly irritating to quite dangerous depending on the type of spider that inflicts the bite, the severity of the bite, and the individual reaction of the person who receives the bite. Natural remedies like baking soda, activated charcoal and Epsom salt work to relieve the pain and inflammation from the bite, draw out the poison, fight secondary infections, and promote healing of the skin.

1. Baking Soda

Baking soda is a remedy that can be quickly applied to a spider bite. Mix baking soda with water into a paste consistency. Apply the paste to the bite. Make sure you cover the bite completely and even apply the paste beyond the initial borders of the bite. Baking soda draws out the toxins and relieves pain and inflammation. Keep a box of baking soda in your car or a small container of it in your backpack. It has so many applications you will be glad you have it on hand at all times.

2. Activated Charcoal

Activated charcoal powder can be used internally and externally to treat spider bites. If you have charcoal tablets you can take 1 or 2 on an empty stomach 2-3 times a day with a full glass of water. The charcoal will take poisons out of the system. Do not take charcoal within 2 hours of any medications that you take.
