Hi,

You should take some self care remedies until you see your doctor.

Take OTC Benadryl/Cetirizine and Advil.

Apply cool compresses.

clean the area with soap and water and apply Bacitracin.

See your doctor ASAP for further management.

It may be possible you develop secondary bacterial infection after spider bite.

Your doctor may prescribe you
Muscle relaxants
Stronger pain relievers and antihistamines
Antibiotics
Supportive care
Antivenin
