Exam: Go to a quick care clinic to have the insect bite checked. Not uncommonly i see secondary infections from insect bites that requires treatment with antibiotics. Often there is an allergic component too. So depending on the appearance of the wound and swelling, appropriate treatment can be rendered. Trial cold compresses for now ; see quick care doctor today.

Insect bite: Take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) 25 mg 3 times a day until swelling subsides. See a doctor if not better!
