Not sure spider bite: Unless you actually watched the spider bite you, I'm not convinced what you have is "a spider bite". Many people mistake a skin abcess/cellulitis for a spider bite. In reality, it's a serious skin infection. If you are now to the point you are having fever, sweats, etc, you need to get to doctor ASAP (like next 6 hours), be evaluated and start treatment if needed. Don't wait any longer!
