    I got bit by a spider on Monday morning. I know that’s when it happened because I felt it and it got worse as the day went on. I have no idea what kind of spider bit me. It was so hot and itched so bad. It went from a 1 inch diameter to a 6 inch diameter in less than 24 hours. I started a apple cider soaked bandage on it that night. I have seen a Dr cause it got worse. The fever had stopped but the redness and itching remained. The pain greatly diminished in the overnight hours. The apple cider vinegar worked!!!! It has done everything but healed the bite completely. The bite is still aggravating but I keep soaking it in a vinegar wrap so I don’t scratch it in my sleep. Do not underestimate the old wives tale cures. They do work

      I was trying to heal naturally as possible. The apple cider vinegar has worked and I wanted others to know. It isn’t instant heal but I’m very happy with the results I’ve gotten

      * Ivermectin. I don’t think it’d be appropriate for a topical wound, seems to work better for certain viruses.

    Baking soda made into a paste also helps a lot to dissolve toxins at a bite, sting, or wound. Black cohosh as a poultice specifically helps with snake bites and spider bites (to a point, it’ll help with brown recluse and other more easily survivable bites, but if you get a really nasty dose from a rattler or severely venomous animal, head to the ER if you need to— I know, we all feel hesitant these days after what happened over the last 3 years, but no use cutting off your nose to spite your face in a real emergency). Garlic both internally and externally helps thin the blood and mucus and get toxins out of the system faster, and milk thistle internally helps keep the liver clean so it can remove toxins when an emergency like this happens. Black drawing salve (mine usually has black cohosh and garlic, in addition to plantain, comfrey, a carrier oil like olive or coconut, activated charcoal, green clay, and sometimes honey and/or tea tree oil)— does wonders for drawing out infections from ulcers, bites, stings, and other wounds that can get infected.

    Charcoal! Will draw out and neutralize the poison. I keep charcoal capsules that I can break open and form into a paste for external use. Can take internally if you think you’ve ingested toxins.

    Funny, I’d gotten bit on my foot by some kind of bug. I suppose it was a spider, but I didn’t see it. Barely left a mark, didn’t get a blister or anything, but boy did it hurt! And it didn’t wear off in a few minutes like other stings, it got steadily worse through the day. I read this, and put a vinegar poultice over the painful area. It helped a whole bunch and didn’t hurt any worse. But it still hurt some, so I put ice on it. That knocked it out completely. The next day, no pain and no sign of any bite. That won’t work for the big things like snake bites I’m sure, but it works nice for spiders, scorpions, bees, yellow jackets and that sort of thing.

    Tobacco poultice (with spit, not water) draws out poison from stings and bites.

    I used a product called Medi-honey, which is a pharmacy med (most you just have to ask; some want a doctor, might depend on the state), to heal a very, very large open sore on my abdomen. I’m the one who suggested it to my doctor after some research into natural ways to heal sores without a doctor around, as I am diabetic and don’t play with that. The primary ingredient is manuka honey. I applied a nice layer, put on a nonstick bandage and wrapped nicely with gauze. Changed it every 2 days or so. It didn’t even leave a scar (it was several mm deep and probably 2.5″ x 2″. The first couple days looked kinda gnarly, as it was healing, it was sloughing off the dead skin on the margins. After about 3 days it was a pretty pink that gradually got smaller and smaller over another week or so.
