Any suggestions on what to do? Would you recommend getting it checked, or is it OK to wait a few days?
Spider bites vary in severity. However, it sounds like yours won't be too bad. The firm area underneath is probably remodeling of the bite to form a type of scar tissue. I would recommend going to see your provider if the redness or pain starts to worsen. Otherwise, you'll probably be fine!
