I currently have a decently sized swollen lump on the side of my palm on the pinky side of my right hand . and the skin around the area and up the arm a little ways is rather sensitive to the touch. There is no redness or itchiness anywhere. just a slight pain on the bottom knuckle. I think it may be a spider bite but im not sure....

It seems that you may be having either irritant contact dermatitis or insect toxic dermatitis.

There may be some irritant or some insect, which may be responsible.

Anyway, the treatment is same.

Take a short course of steroids in tappering dose.

Take antihistaminics.

You take antibiotics to preve nt se condary infection.

I think, you may be benefitted.

I hope you got my a nsw er.
