As a follow-up to an earlier post on surviving deadly animal attacks in the wild and another one on relieving a jellyfish sting, listed below are things you should do (and shouldn't do) if you are ever bitten or stung by potentially poisonous wild animals.
In general, seek professional medical attention as soon as possible if there is any possibility of infection from a poisonous animal and wash the infected area with soap and water. Though you may be eliminating all possibilities of acquiring superhero mutant powers from radioactive spiders and other radiation-laced creatures, it's probably not worth the risk of getting a painfully infected, fluid-filled blister afterwards or being hospitalized for a really long time.
