    Brown Reclusive Spider (Loxosceles) bite treatment0001 Brown Reclusive Spider (Loxosceles) bite treatment: hojja_nusreddin — LiveJournal


    Auer Classification of Systemic Signs and Symptoms:
    http://highway60. com/mark/brs/classification.htm
    The big rule to follow is, do ignore NOT any strange, unexplained wound that grows in size or symptoms. If you have a wound that steadily increases in discomfort or size for 48 hours, medical attention is strongly advised.
    When given medications for your bite, learn everything about your medication!
    Be fully informed of what side effects and long term exposure effects it can have. Upon reading over 1000 spider bite cases, it is easy to spot that about half the people reporting their bites did not understand what the drugs they were given were used for and what side effects they may have.

    Nearly all bites will have developed most of their symptoms within 48 hours. In the case of the Loxosceles, it can take as long as 1 to 2 weeks.

    There is no antinomial available in the US to counteract the poisonous venom of the BRS.
    The treatment of localized necrosis, as caused by the Loxosceles spider:
    there is none.
    It is entirely up to your own body to do damage control and repair.

    Necrotic lesions can be difficult to manage, and early surgery to remove dead tissue has not been shown to improve outcomes. Necrotic lesions with careful cleaning are allowed to mature for weeks until spreading stops and healing appears to occur. Then a wide area of ​​tissue around the wound is removed and skin grafting may be done once all evidence of skin necrosis has subsided.
    However, there are things that you can do to aid your body in doing it’s job.
    Your primary concern is infection. As mentioned earlier, antibiotics administered by mouth or injection will help prevent the spread of infection throughout your body. They will have little or no effect at the actual wound site.
    The best thing you can do is follow a very strict regimen of cleanliness.
    Think hospital surgery suite area. Use Betadyne or similar powerful antibiotic cleaning agents and if possible, get sterile gloves. Keep the wound covered at all times with a proper dressing that lets it breath yet keeps out bacteria. Use topical antibiotic agents, creams or salves. Neosporin as an example. Then let nature run it’s course.
    The Poison Center recommended antibiotics. Their studies showed that cutting into the wound didn’t do any good and suggested “do not touch it”.
    After initial evaluation, your doctor may provide the following treatment:
    – Tetanus immunization
    – Pain medication
    – Antibiotics
    – Antihistamines such as diphenhydramine (Benadryl) for itch relief
    Controversial therapies include:
    – steroids and the drug dapsone (Avlosulfon).
    These are often reserved for people with severe systemic disease (such as certain types of anemia, blood clotting problems, and kidney failure).
    Therapies have little proven benefit.

    Prescriptions (from Linda’s case):

    Cephalexin (antibiotic), Vicadin (pain), and Triple Antibiotic Ointment.
    Every 4 hours – on day 4th
    A shot of Rocephin (ceftriaxone sodium) and a 10-day supply of Avelox (moxifloxacin HCL) – on 14th day com/spider_bite_brown_recluse_spider_bite/page6_em.htm)
    – Do not place any heat to the area. This will accelerate tissue destruction.
    – Do not apply any steroid creams to the area such as hydrocortisone cream.
    – Do not attempt to remove the spider venom with suction devices or cut out the affected tissue.
    – Do not apply electricity to the area. Anecdotal reports of high voltage electrotherapy from common stun guns have never been shown to be effective in any scientific studies. This can also cause secondary burns and deep tissue destruction.
