Wolf Spider Bite

Here's an email from Mary Leigh regarding her wolf spider bite. Please note the fact that she has an allergic reaction to the spider's bite and that most people suffer little to no problems with the bite of a wolf spider.

I live in Lakewood New Jersey. I had a nasty allergic reaction to a wolf spider. Normally, they don't bother with humans, but it happened to crawl up my pants leg, and I hit my pants and got bit. Fever, swelling, burning, itching, pain, achy, all my glands were swollen and painful caused by an infection in my lymphatic system due to my body's reaction. It wasn't necessarily the venom or saliva itself, but the fact that my body will not tolerate it, just the same as say ragweed, mosquitoes and yellow jackets to me. Pretty nasty though. TREATMENT: lance, clean, antibiotic ointment and oral antibiotics (Keflex 500 mg. 3 times daily.
