Brief Answer:
Probably not spider bite

Detailed Answer:

Hi and welcome,

It looks like mosquito bite and it may be seen in other parts of body if spider was present in these parts and bit you. But rash or inflammation without bite are not seen in this types of spider. If there is rash all over the body then it may be allergic reaction to medications or ointments. It may take up to 7 days for medications to work so you should be patient. Wish you good health.
