I was sitting here staring blankly at the computer and a brown recluse decided to give me some company. It reminded me that last year I got a bite from a brown recluse. After minor blood poisoning and barely being able to use my leg for over a week, I figure it’s good to not have anyone else go through that. It’s an easy fix.
Start with your basic Baking Soda
Grind up pure Aspirin in a mortar and pestle
Throw in a couple of Vitamin C tablets
Once you have the mixture to a fine powder, add just a hint of water.
You will get this chalky clay
*Make sure not to use too much water. Just use enough to hold it together.
Get a large gauze pad or fold a paper towel and put a bit of the mixture on it
Tape the pad over the bite making sure that the bite is in the center of the mixture
It will burn a bit but it is a flawless fix.
What the Baking Soda does is literally draw out the poison so with that said, you are going to get a lot of discharge from the bite. Keep a close eye on the bite and change the mixture often. Once the mixture has soaked up the poison (and whatever else decides to come with it) you’re just sitting in a pool of muck.
I had to change mine almost every hour, sometimes even more often but then again I let my wound get pretty bad before trying to fix it.
The vitamin C will help to slow necrosis. It also helps to take a couple of vitamin C tablets off and on throughout the day. You can’t overdose on Vitamin C as they say.
The aspirin is obviously for pain but it also aids in drawing out the poison.
I beg of you not to be like me and let it go. As soon as you start to see necrosis around a bite, get the poison out as fast as possible. My little experiment with myself could have been detrimental had I not fixed it.
Hopefully this helps
