Spider bite, blister, full of clear liquid, headache, lump near knee. Treatment?

I got bite by something (I believe a spider) a few days ago and within a few hours it was a blister a little smaller then a dime it was half full of clear fluid and the rest was white. I had a headache also. The next day it slowly went down but I didn t see an opening for it to drain. Now I have a golf ball sized lump directly above where he blister was but Right next to my knee . It hurts pretty bad and looks like a White spot is forming In the center. Do you think these two are related and why I ha e these.

Hi Taylor,
Welcome to heathcare Magic!
The bite has got infected and an abscess has formed inside.
As a rule healing is better if the pus collection is drained.
Either surgically by your doctor or spontaneously.
The antibiotics would be more effective once you get the pus drained.
You should get tetanus immunization if you did not receive the last shotwithinlast 5years.
Wish you a great health!
