22. Spider bite remedy
What is it?
A non-life-threatening spider bite might become a bit inflamed and swollen after the fact. The bite has released some toxins, but they have remained localized. Before leaving a spider bite and not seeking treatment, it’s best to know what type of spider has bitten you. Most spider bites might cause some discomfort. Only a small number can be fatal.
What’s the remedy?
Slice up a raw potato. Clean the bite and the area around it with an antiseptic. Put a slice on the affected area and strap it in place using some sticking plaster. Leave the slice of potato on the bite for the next 10-20 minutes.
Why does it work?
The soothing properties of raw potato will ease the skin irritation caused by a spider bite. The itchiness and pain will be reduced. The potato can also draw out the toxins that have remained under the bite.
