Spider bites
Bites from most spiders are irritating, but not poisonous. Localized reddening and swelling are not unusual, and should pass within a few days. A few spiders are poisonous, notably the black widow and brown recluse (brown fiddler) in the US. Bites from these spiders requires emergency treatment, especially for children.
