Customer Question

I have what I believe is a spider bite on my right ear. I felt an itch on the upper ear (2 days ago) while at work, and by the end of my shift it was more annoying. When home, I swabbed it with hydrogen peroxide and applied Caladryl Clear lotion to soothe the itching. Day 2, my ear was slightly swollen and warm to the touch and bright red, more Caladryl appled. Today, the same but with several clear blister spots. Is there something else I should apply?
