Bit by a spider, foot and leg swelled, painful. Not infected. Had antihistimines and antibiotics. Is this normal or something else wrong?

I got bit by a spider over a month ago and my right foot and leg swelled and was painful. I went to the Er and they say it was not infected but gave me pain medication , antihistimines and antibiotics . I followed up with my doctor after 2 weeks. My root seem to be less swollen but still very swollen. He indicated it was probably venom hanging around and it would be about a month for my leg to be back to normal. It s 2 weeks later and my foot and leg is smaller but still very swollen and now I am developing this very hard crease where my foot and ankle meets and it is very hars and constricted Because of this changeand the amount of time its been. I m thinking it may be something else wrong.
