Spider bites can be worse than you would think. I have seen a number of them that have become secondarily infected. The appearance will vary with the individual AND the type of spider. Better see a doctor to be sure you don't develop any other complications.

Swelling in the scalp maybe a spider bite?

Spider bite lesions

have extremely variable presentations. There isn't a way to tell you if the swelling is related to a spider bite. Dermatological evaluation may help to determine the cause for your symptoms.

Most spider bite are like other insect bites and may hurt at first but afterward, like with any break in the skin, infection needs to be watched for. So cleaning is best. Some are dangerous like the well known widow and recluse bites in the USA, but there are other less known species that can cause problems like the recluse too. Generally, watch the bite and if concerned, see a physician.

what is the treatment for spider bite?

Time

Allergies
Most spider bites cause only a small local allergic reaction. If this is all it is some anitbiotic ointment a bandaid and time (1 to 2 days) and it should be fine. If it looks like it is getting infected ( increasing redness, pain or not improving) you should see your doctor. Only a small minority of spider bites cause infection or serious skin injury.

Information

Most likely by knowing the type of spider. Also by the healing pattern. The reaction to a poisonness spider bite is much larger and more intense than non poisonness bites.

Dr. Joel Gallant answered:

Why is my spider bite warm?

Skin infection

Spider_bites
Probably because it's not a spider bite (they rarely are), but a bacterial infection of the skin. The warmth is a sign of inflammation and infection.
