Swelling after bug bite with migraines

My girlfriend was just walking and got bit on by a small red spider the size of a needle point. At first it just looked like a red spider mite, which are harmless. However, then my girlfriend began feeling swelling around the bite, and we noticed some redness. It s been a few hours and her hand is now numb, and she feels prickling pain all up her right arm. She says her right eye feels warm, and she has small migrains.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Any sort of insect bite deserves immediate medical attention. She can take an over the counter antihistamine and get shown to the Doctor at the ER to relieve her of the symptoms.
