What to Do for a Child's Spider BIte

If your child receives a spider bite, watch him closely for the next few hours. Children can go into anaphylactic shock, which is an extreme reaction to a spider or insect bite.

To prevent further trauma, administer Mom's Magic Trauma Sprinkles which is a 100% natural remedy that reduces trauma and shock and will instantly soothe your child. Even children who normally have no reaction to spider bites can experience this reaction, so it helps to calm your child as soon as possible. If your child exhibits any of the following symptoms, take him to a hospital immediately:

  • Loss of consciousness

  • Abdominal cramps, nausea or vomiting

  • Headache

  • Flushed skin, swollen lips, throat, tongue, hands or feet

  • Hives

  • Coughing, hoarseness, shortness of breath or wheezing

If you didn't see the event occur, ask your child to describe the spider. If you can, capture it and put it in a jar so a doctor can determine what type of spider it is. The most poisonous spiders in the United States are the black widow and brown recluse. If your child is bitten by either of these, rush him to emergency.
