How I cured my brown recluse bite

Submitted by Cheryl

I cured my brown recluse bite by filling hole with baking soda over and over, placing bandage over it, until it drew all poison out and dried it completely. It looked like leather but it worked. Then I applied triple antibiotic ointment (like neosporin) to it until it softened again and filled up with skin. Now I only have a quarter sized pink spot where the hole was.

sometimes doctors don't do anything. i've read that shocking the area with electricity helps.

if anyone's going to see a doctor about a bite like this, they should make sure they at least see someone who specializes in this sort've thing. if their regular doctor doesn't seem to know what he/she is talking about, move on.
