It is difficult to guess what kind of spider it could have been but it can also be a tick bite - especially if the sore gets a black centre ( eschar) see tickbitefever.com/images/tick_bite.JPG
If you suspect that it is a tick bite, ask your doctor if the medication he gave you includes a tetracycline antibiotic.
Malaria can also give fever, flu like symptoms but won't cause swollen glands.
RAther go back for follow up if no improvement in 48 hours on medication
