Large painful lump on leg, spider bite, unable to walk, hot to touch, pus. Treatment?

My son has a large painful lump on his leg that looks like it is from a spider bite . He has had it for three days and it is getting worse. A physicians assistant looked at it today and said it is nothing to be concerned about. My son now does not want to walk on his leg and the bite is warm to the touch. He also said there was pus coming from it this morning. Is this something that will eventually go away on its own?

Since pus has started coming from the site,it means it is infected.
It will not go away of it's own and a course of antibiotic has to given to him along with anti inflammatory medicines.
Talk to your doctor for the prescription of anti biotic.
