Spider Bite and Arm Numbness

3 weeks ago I was bitten by a brown recluse twice on my right arm. I have been to my doctor 3 times for 2 rounds of antibiotics and steriod cream. The bites have gotten worse and the wound has gotten bigger despite the antibiotics and cream. I have numbnes in my arm from the shoulder down and I have developed a rash around one of the bite and on my stomach. I don't know what to do- should I go to the hospital?
