In addition to the hose I'd take benedryl, and if you can get it, a shot of dexamethasone, steroid for swelling relief. DMSO can be used around, not over and on, the bite also to reduce swelling. Wait awhile before applying, though, so that you don't drive the venom in while it's spreading. About a hour or so, and it will have travelled as far is it's going to, then you can DMSO it. THis is really great for extremities.
