How do I treat a brown recluse spider bite?

Treatment of a brown recluse spider bite will depend on recommendations made by your healthcare provider. They may ask you to perform the following steps:

  • Wash the affected area with soap and water
  • Wrap an ice pack in a towel and apply it to the area
  • Apply an antibiotic lotion or cream to prevent infection.
  • If the bite is on an arm or leg, use the RICE treatment (rest, ice, compression, elevation)

If the bite develops into a boil or ulcer, see a doctor right away.
