side of the hand is in extreme distress

Resolved Question:

I was bitten on the hand by what I believe to be a spider the size of approx. 1 cent. That side of the hand is in extreme distress. Is there a homeopathic treatment to lessen this pain?

   Hello.I can offer the allopathic equivalent.A 5-7 day course of steroids like Prednisolone/Methylprednisolone,local soothing /antibiotic salve/ointment and a antiallergic drug like Avil will do the needful.If secondary infection develops,you may need antibiotics.
