What is a good home remedy for pain relief from a spider bite?

I was unpacking some boxes in our shed and got bit by a black widow spider. My symptoms are under control but the area where i was bit hurts like heck. I took 2 pain pills but they don't seem to be helping.

  • Ice... The pain is caused by a reaction to the spider's poison, cold or ice will slow the flow and allow your body to fight it off better.

  • get an onion and put it in a hot pan for a little bit then put it in a sock and on the spider bite and it will bring all the posion up to the top and you can get rif of it after you do that and it takes the pain away, if doing it in the pan doesnt work try boiling it
