A member asked:

Wasp sting 6-8 weeks ago. upper arm just above elbow. took a few days to settle down. now same area flared up a couple days ago. itching. a red swollen bumpy rash. warm to touch. doesnt hurt but really itches. infection cellulitis?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Probably not infected. However, suggest you see dermatologist to confirm and obtain the proper treatment which might be a potent topical steroid cream along with an antihistamine. You might want to soak the affected area in ice water until seen.
