Spider Bite Symptoms

Portland OR, Vancouver WA

Welcome to our symptoms page. Here you will find spider bite symptoms from the Hobo Spider and the Brown Recluse Spider. As we add more spiders to our website, we will add the symptoms of their bite to this page as well. We always suggest that if you have a spider bite that you are worried about have a doctor take a look at it, and if possible capture the specimen that bite you and bring it in for analysis.

Symptoms of a Hobo Spider bite

A lot of the time we will run across a Hobo Spider on accident. A Hobo Spider bite has symptoms that include: slight prickling sensation with a numb, small, hard area that appears within 30 minutes of the bite. The symptoms effect an area of 3 or more inches that becomes red. This area will become blistered roughly 10-40 hours after the bite and then roughly 24 hours later the blister will break. These bites range from person to person. Don’t worry though, roughly 50% of the people bitten by a Hobo Spider don’t show any symptoms. Specialists always suggest that if you can, catch the spider that bit you and bring it in for analysis.

Symptoms of a Brown Recluse Spider Bite

As we stated on our Brown Recluse page, the venom of a Brown Recluse is very toxic, even more so than the venom of a rattle snake. The amount of venom that is introduced into our blood stream after a bite is minimal. In common cases there will be blistering of the bite area with a white tip on the blister. The bite itself has been reported as not painful, with symptoms showing 2-8 hours after the bite. In more rare cases there is muscle pain, necrosis of skin, vomiting and nausea.
