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.
Do not know which kind of spider and this happened several weeks ago. Appeared to be getting better then I woke up to a swollen red foot. I was given some penicillin from a friend but have not taken them. I have been keeping foot elevated and this morning swelling was down but is back after being on my feet most of the day.
