Spider bite first aid kit:


Signs and symptoms of an insect bite results from the injection of venom or other substances into the skin. The venom triggers allergic reaction. The severity of the reaction depends on your sensitivity to the insect venom or substance. Most reactions to insect bites are mild, causing nothing more than an annoying itching or stinging sensation and mild swelling that disappear within a day or so. A delayed reaction to the bite may cause fever, hives, painful joints and swollen glands. Only a small percentage of people develop severe reactions to insect venom. The signs and symptoms of a severe reaction include facial swelling, difficulty breathing and shock. Bites from bees, wasps, hornets, yellow jackets and fire ants are generally the most troublesome while Bites from mosquitoes, ticks, biting flies and some spiders also can cause some reactions, but these are generally milder.

For mild reactions:

When there is a mild reaction firstly move to a safe area to avoid more stings. Scrape or brush off the stinger with a straight edge object such as a credit card or the back of a knife. Wash the effected area wit soap water. Don't pull of the stinger because it may release more venom. Allergic reactions may include mild nausea and intestinal cramps, diarrhea or swelling larger than 2 inches in diameter at the site. See your doctor promptly if you experience any of these signs and symptoms.

For severe reactions:

Severe reactions progress very rapidly. Signs or symptoms for severe reactions are difficulty in breathing, swelling of the lips or throat, faintness, dizziness, confusion, rapid heartbeat, hives, nausea, cramps and vomiting. If you are experiencing all these problems in that case for special medications that the person might be carrying to treat an allergic attack, such as an auto-injector of epinephrine. You should administer the drug as directed. Usually by pressing the auto-injector against the persons thigh and holding it in place for several seconds then massage the injection site for about 10 seconds to enhance absorption. After administering epinephrine make the person take an antihistamine pill if he or she is able to do without choking. Then make the person lie down on the back with his/ her legs higher than her head. Loosen all the tight clothing of the person and cover with a blanket and don't give anything to drink. If the person is vomiting or bleeding from the mouth then turn the person on his or her side to prevent choking. If there are no signs of breathing, choking or movement then use CPR.
