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

Hope this helps.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
