• Home remedies for spider bites can help extract venom, reduce swelling, and ease pain and itching.
  • Make a paste with charcoal and water. You can find charcoal capsules at health food stores. Empty the contents and add a little water. Apply the paste to the spider bite. This will extract venom.
  • If you don't have charcoal, make a paste with baking soda and water. This will extract venom and help reduce swelling.
  • Potatoes are also said to draw out venom. Slice a potato and place it over the spider bite.
  • Apply cold compresses to reduce swelling and soothe pain.
  • Rub a pinch of crushed basil over the spider bite until the consistency of the basil turns into a fine sand. This will decrease swelling and ease the itch.
  • To help relieve pain, make a paste with turmeric and olive oil and apply.
  • Cut off a piece of garlic or onion, place it over the spider bite, and secure it with tape. Both are great home remedies for spider bites because they help relieve symptoms and speed up recovery time.
