    Huntsman spiders aren't poisonous, but for peace of mind it can't hurt to get checked out.

    If you are sure its a Huntsmen, they are not venomous but if you have been bitten and develop any symptoms of infection you should see a doctor. There is no danger other than that of infection like with any other wound.
