Most likely a brown recluse spider.

In brief: Recluse
Brown recluse and black widows have a toxic venom that destroys tissue and can lead to gangrene.
These need to be addressed as soon as possible to stop the tissue destruction.

In brief: See a doctor!
Agree with previous answers - however, with a spider bite and these symptoms you should be followed closely.
The venom can cause local gangrene and in the toes this becomes a bit more concerning.
