Testimonial from a Brown Recluse Spider Bite Victim
“I was bitten by a called Brown Recluse Spider, on September 21st, 2011 at 18:30. In one hour I perceived that I had been bitten but it felt as if it had only been a pinprick. After only 3 hours I started to feel intense pain at the bite location (ankle) and a burning fire on the foot. I felt giddiness and nausea.
I was taken to the hospital about 5 hours afterward. The doctor identified it as a bite and informed me it would turn into a large wound with passing of the days. I was given a prescription of intravenous serum and corticosteroid to place on the wound.
During the night of the 22nd I started using the 7.5cm x 7.5cm EyeOn patch by placing it over the doctor's bandage. Two days
after I started to use EyeOn directly on the skin.
The site can erupt into a "Volcano Lesion"
"The result was surprising not just for me but also for the doctor who upon seeing the wound became impressed with the speed the of the skin regeneration. I attribute this fast regeneration to the use of the EyeOn patch." Katia V. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
The bite of the brown recluse spider can result in a painful, deep wound that takes a long time to heal. Fatalities are extremely rare, but bites are most dangerous to young children, the elderly, and those in poor physical condition. When there is a severe reaction to the bite, the site can erupt into a "volcano lesion" (a hole in the flesh due to damaged, gangrenous tissue). The open wound may range from the size of an adult's thumbnail to the span of a hand. The dead tissue gradually sloughs away, exposing underlying tissues. The sunken, ulcerating sore may heal slowly up to 6 to 8 weeks. Full recovery may take several months and scarring may remain. Ohio State University Entomology Fact Sheet
