What do you use on a spider bite?
I was bitten on Monday in my work van 6 times on the arm, those are healed up but one on my thumb as a lump, is red and swelled. Putting on the homemade salve - plaintain, comfrey. wrapped it in plaintain, but I feel I should be doing something else.
I am not sure it was a spider but I killed a white spider, later by the steering wheel, so it got blamed.
