Thanks for the reply

The description you have stated seems to be of bruise. but your concern about spider bite, you should know better whether you had been bitten by insect or not. however in both cases the recovery is spontaneous, if you are having pain that is uncomfortable. Then anti-inflammatory drugs are recommended. A local steroid can also be applied for early resolution of the bruise.

f you have further queries, feel free to ask. It will be my pleasure to help you
