Spider Bite Treatment
For most people with spider bites, including black widow and brown recluse spider bites, the following treatment measures are all that’s required:
- Clean the bite with mild soap and water. Apply an antibiotic ointment if you think the bite was caused by a brown recluse spider.
- Apply to the skin a natural anti-inflammatory gel (SKLEER Natural Skin Restoration Gel) to relieve the itching, swelling, redness, inflammation and pain, and aid healing.
- Apply a cool compress to the bite. This helps reduce pain and swelling.
- If the bite is on an arm or leg, elevate it.
- Take over-the-counter medications as needed. You might try a pain reliever, such as acetaminophen (Tylenol, others) or ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others), or an antihistamine (Benadryl, Chlor-Trimeton, others).
- Observe the bite for signs of infection (that is the area around the bite swelling more, getting redder and more painful over time).
Your doctor may also recommend a tetanus booster shot if you haven’t had one in the last five years. You may need antibiotics if the bite becomes infected.
With most spider bites the primary objective is to relieve itching, reduce inflammation and prevent infection. SKLEER Natural Skin Restoration Gel contains Eucalyptus Oil, a well-known anti-inflammatory that is perfect for itchy or inflamed skin. The combination of essential oils in SKLEER: Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Caraway, Cinnamon and Cardamom work synergistically. The proprietary gel formula takes the potent essential oils deep into the skin to optimise healing. The therapeutic power of SKLEER lies in the fact that the gel takes the natural ingredients to the lower levels of the skin for enhanced penetration and effectiveness.
For itchy skin, the oil of eucalyptus is both anti-inflammatory and a natural antiseptic, it is also a highly effective soothing agent for the skin. Caraway oil neutralises the effects of histamine and as such can be very helpful in dissolving skin rashes. The SKLEER Natural Skin Restoration Gel forms a protective layer on the skin to help lock moisture in and hence creates a perfect environment for healing.
SKLEER contains no parabens, no harmful preservatives, no lanolin, no hydroquinone, no corticosteroids and is not tested on animals. The all natural formula is ideal for even the most sensitive of skins, all age groups and is suitable for babies and toddlers. Thanks to the unique patent pending formulation SKLEER All in One Skin Corrective is non-greasy.
It is recommended to clean the area with soap then apply SKLEER Natural Skin Restoration Gel. Typically the swelling and discomfort will disappear immediately, but re-apply SKLEER after a few minutes if the swelling and discomfort hasn’t completely subsided.
SKLEER being a natural product that is good for the skin allows you to apply it as many times as you like if necessary (usually only one or two will be required).
Occasionally the itchiness and swelling may return about an hour later, just clean the area and re-apply SKLEER.
Below are a couple of unsolicited real reviews from people using SKLEER on spider bites.
I was bitten by a spider on my neck and it was extremely uncomfortable. I couldn't get rid of the painful itch. I was shocked and surprised how quickly Skleer got rid of the pain, and it's good for my skin, I'd call that a win-win.

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
I used the new product Skleer for the first time on what I think was a spider bite. The site of the bite was red raised and large. I applied Skleer and after the first application the swelling went down. After the next application it appeared that the bite was coming to a head. Several more applications and the bite just disappeared. I highly recommend this product.
SKLEER’s great to keep around the house as besides being excellent for spider bites, it’s just wonderful for making your skin look and feel good, and it’s outstanding to use on a whole host of skin conditions as they come up among the family.
