If they are infected, you need to see a dr. Depending on the spider they can get nasty pretty fast. Drugs like keflex are used for the infection.

Do you know what the spider was? I was bitten by a brown recluse spider and waited three days to get to a doctor. By then it was IV vanc (draino) and operations to stop the progress of the tissue death. Maybe you should get in to a medical clinic. If you have the spider take it with you to the clinic.
