When I was a little girl, probably only about 3 or 4 years old, I had the unfortunate luck of getting bitten by a nasty spider. Thankfully, the critter wasn’t anything too awful that I had to be rushed to the hospital, but it sure wasn’t fun.
But to tell you the truth, I quickly forgot all about the pain, and to this day only remember one thing: the strange home remedy my mom used, which she learned from her mom, to make the swelling go down and get me back in better spirits.
It might sound strange, but I can tell you firsthand that slicing up a raw potato and wrapping an Ace bandage around the affected area really does the trick! After sleeping with it on all night, I woke up to a barely noticeable and pain-free bump.
