Itchy, Swollen Calves
I got stung by a bee on my calf yesterday and it is very swollen, red, hot, itchy, and painful. Am i allergic?
Not really : Your tissues are responding to toxic bee venom. If you were truly allergic you might have tightness of bronchial passageways within first few minutes & difficulty breathing.

Assuming Phlebitis: Plebitis blocks the normal venous return, and hurts the valves in the veins.
