Experts are warning people to avoid wearing masks as the condition can lead to allergic reactions.
The condition known as spider bite syndrome is caused by a common type of allergic reaction called coronavirus, or CRS.
People who suffer from this condition are at increased risk of developing symptoms of the allergy, which can include itching, burning, swelling, and pain.
Symptoms of spider bite can range from mild to life-threatening.
If you have symptoms that aren’t obvious, there’s a chance you may have CRS, or you may not know it.

Symposium on spider bites and the treatment of Curs in AustraliaThe International Conference on Spider Bite and the Treatment of Curses will be held in Canberra on Saturday 19 February.
It is the largest gathering of spiders, mites and other insects in the country.
In a statement released on Tuesday, the ACASWA conference organiser, David Bail, said the meeting was “focused on developing a range of best practice interventions to prevent and treat spider bites, including managing symptoms, managing risk and managing costs”.
“We also look forward to addressing the wider issues of managing spider populations, controlling the spread of C.V., and encouraging research into new treatments and therapies,” he said.
“I hope that attendees will take a few moments to think about what is involved when we are dealing with spiders and mites in Australia and around the world.”
The conference, which is also known as the Spider and Mite Association of Australia, is the first of its kind to be held at Canberra.
The ACASW is a non-profit organisation established in 2011, which seeks to improve the lives of people with spider bites.
It has been a great success, Mr Bail said.
The conference will take place at the National Library of Australia in Canberra from 2pm on Saturday, 19 February, and is free.
