See a doctor: The expanding rash with pain and warmth suggest significant inflammation and possible infection. Best to see a doctor for examination.

Infection concern: This is now day 3 and I would expect a reaction to be getting better not worse. The symptoms of hurts to touch, hot and continuing to move down your arm are concerning for infection. Be seen today by a doctor for assessment and treatment. I hope this gets better soon.
