    This would not be a dangerous spider, and Ice is the best treatment. There may be a lingering itch, and a topical analgesic with menthol will help this.

    What you need to watch for, is any swelling about the face, mouth, or tongue. this is a sign of possible allergies and can be serious, requiring emergency medical treatment.

    Otherwise, wash with soap and water, and go on your way.

    Can you get in contact with a parent or a relative? Let an adult know. Some spiders can have poisonous bites.

    if the spider was small go to the hospital but if it was kinda big and hairy dont worry a bee sting is worse try putting ice or vicks vaporub on the bite
