Sleeping spider bite makes girls fight for life


An 18-year-old girl was rushed to the operating room after being bitten Suspected false widow spider in Wales, United Kingdom

Abby Tannetta and a friend are on holiday at the trailer park resort in Cardigan, West Wales, to celebrate the end of her studies. Tannetta had been to the resort many times before because her parents owned a trailer there.

But on the first night of her recent vacation, on May 26, she woke up with pain under her arm and saw a spider In her bed. Tanita told SWNS: “I was awakened from my sleep by the severe pain. Looking next to me, I saw this huge spider running away from the bed.

“It’s really painful and it’s getting worse. It’s bigger, it’s red, it’s itchy, and it hurts so much that I can’t move my arms or sleep on the side.”

After she ran out of the room, she ran back but couldn’t find the spider, so she was too scared to sleep in her room that night. But she later managed to catch the spider in a plastic container and took a picture-she believed it might be a fake widow spider.

She said that she felt “dizzy” and her heartbeat accelerated. The lump under her arm also grew to the size of a golf ball.

Tannetta took antihistamines to fight the infection caused by the bite, but the lump under her arm continued to grow and became more painful. Three days later, she went to see a doctor and prescribed antibiotics.

She was told that if the wound started to leak pus, she would go to the emergency room-it did happen two days later. In the emergency room, Tanneta was told that she needed surgery, otherwise the wound might cause sepsis.

Under general anesthesia, the doctor removes the lump and empties the infected area. When she returned home the next day, the nurse repaired her wound every day.

Tanita said: “It’s very difficult. I have experienced a lot of pain during the recovery process. Now the pain is much better. After the operation, I felt that I was stabbed, but now it has disappeared. I’m on the contrary, I just don’t Comfortable.”

“False widows are not spiders they are sometimes considered deadly,” the Natural History Museum said. Although they are poisonous, the venom is “not particularly effective.”

The museum stated that the pain caused by a bite rarely lasts more than 24 hours. “If the wound is not kept clean, the extreme side effects experienced are likely to be the result of a secondary infection, possibly a bacterial infection.”

In addition, according to the “Science Daily” report, the symptoms of false widow bites may include “mild to weak pain and mild to severe swelling” as well as “tremor, decreased or increased blood pressure, nausea, and mobility problems.”

In addition, the “Science Daily” reported: “In rare cases, victims have minor wounds at the bite site or have to receive treatment due to severe bacterial infections.”
