Red Back Spider bit me. Do I have anything to worry about?!

Question: Red Back Spider bit me. Do I have anything to worry about?
I was just bitten by a Red Back Spider about half an hour ago. Do I have anything to worry about? It was a female spider & young by the size of it. The bite is on my hand & it is still very painfull but no blood was drawn. I have no symptoms (yet) except the pain where I got bit. Does anyone have ANY advice? .... ( & PLEEEZE,, No Slim Dusty jokes! This is nothing to laugh about.)


Are you still with us ? The amount of exercise in typing the question should have distributed the venom around your body. Has your arm started to swell ? when this happens it is getting closer to your heart.

Don't wait to catch the spider, this could be your downfall / demise, so if you are still with us, SEE A DOCTOR, the cure is usually an injection in the rear.

Edit 1051 gmt . Mate, have you still got any tinnies left, if so have another drink and dilute the poison as much as possible. If this doesn't work at least you will go happy. God bless you

Once bitten, by spider in Greece now, Twice shy

I would go to the ER and get checked out. Try to catch it in a jar and take it to the ER (maybe too late for that?). Esp. since you are in Australia, where there are lots of poisonous spiders. Don't mess with it or wait around too long.

Seek medical attention as soon as possible, if this is not a joking matter don't treat it as such by posting potentially life threatening inquiries on the Internet.

I would even call an ambulance, for their advice if nothing else.

Been bitten on the finger by a redback.

Dude, you have to go to the doctors NOW!
a fully grown red back would've killed you in 30secs. Go before it's too late
