on the type of spider, and ther are only 4 Genera of spiders in the US that are dangerous to humans but generally, there may be 1 or 2 small puncture wounds in the center of a red, warm, swollen, initially painful (sometimes) but then sometimes itchy area. There may occasionally be some numbness in the area also. However, black widow bites and brown recluse and hobos can be quite different.

What is the fastest way to get a rid of a spider bite??

Rare

Spider_bites
Unless you actually saw the spider most of these lesions are actually due to MRSA infections and you should be seen and treated by a doctor. Spiders rarely bite humans and when they do the only ones in USA which are serious are the Brown spider (Loxsoceles reclusa) and the Black Widow.

Which treatment works the best and fastest for a brown recluse spider bite?

Painful spider bite

Cortizone
A brown recluse spider can make a painful bite in a human, which can turn quickly into a area of ulceration, that may heal very slowly with a scar. The best way to treat such a spider bite is to prevent being bitten. If you are bitten, get to your doctor right away for possible injection of cortisone right into the bite area, or take oral prednisone, and be given other local care.
