    Other than the advice of calling your doctor or going to the E.R - it is all unhelpful and not very amussing. Some people just can't seem to understand the seriousness of an issue like this.

    It depends on what type of spider it was. Most people that end up being bitten by spider's and have a bite mark the size of what you are describing could be from a Black Widow. Just to make sure it was a Black Widdow, you may be experiencing some of these other symptoms:

    - muscle cramps

    - abdominal (belly) pain

    - respiratory difficulties (trouble breathing)

    - nausia (vomitting)

    - tremors (shaking)

    As far as what you can do at home, you are really limited! I suggest taking a hot bath and some over the counter pain relievers such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen.

    If you are NOT experiencing these symptoms, don't worry about going to the hospital or ER. However, I would schedule an appointment ASAP with your doctor just for re-evaluation. If you are experiencing JUST ONE or MORE, go to the Emergency Room at once! If you have already taken acetaminophen or ibuprofen, do NOT drive yourself (as you could pass out from the medicine - as it makes you drowsy). Call a friend or an ambulance.

    If you do end up going to the hospital, they will administer a drug called antivenin which is a medication just for Black Widow bites. Before, however, they will test your skin to make sure that there is in-fact venom in your skin.

    I hope this helps a lot! Good luck!

    Either get a taxi to take you to the emergency section of the hospital, or call an ambulance. (You may not remain conscious if you try to drive yourself, or take a bus or whatever.) But go now.

    Seek medical attention immediately. The spider venom seems to be very potent, and it is poisoning you.
