Spider bites from different spider species vary in appearance. The common symptoms of a spider bite are small, red bumps on the skin that can also be painful or itchy. Spiders that are more venomous, like black widows, can cause muscle cramping or another severe body discomfort. To treat the area, wash it with water and soap, and apply some antibiotic ointment. Observe the bite for signs of a potential infection.
