Updated July 20, 2011

From the article: Spider Bites
While the majority of spiders are harmless, bites from black widow spiders, brown recluse spiders, and tarantulas can result in skin lesions, neurological toxicity, and other systemic health issues. While allergic reactions to spider bites are possible, it is most likely that the toxin delivered by the spider bite is the reason for any symptoms that may occur.

Have you been bitten by a spider? What type of reaction did you experience? Was medical treatment necessary? What ways have you found to avoid being bitten again? Share your story, and read from others, about reactions to spider bites.
